Banana Blossom -edible?
Howdy from Houston.
I went to Chinatown and saw them selling the red tips of a banana blossom. I'm not sure what it is called exactly, but it's the part of the banana cluster that makes more bananas... it's about 6" to 12" long, and about as wide around as a softball. It's also red and pointy- almost and upside down tear dropped shape.
Anyone know how they eat these things? who eats these things? how to cook (or are they eatten raw?) these things?
I think they were selling for five bucks a pop.
I've got banana plants growing in my backyard, and I have one of these babies on the end of the clusters that are growing.
