MINATAMIS NA SAGING WITH CALAMANSI

If you were born  and raised in Quezon, Philippines you surely are a certified banana lover. Aside from coconuts, bananas especially the saba (plantains) are very abundant in the province of Quezon and the locals know a hundred and one ways to prepare and cook bananas. Minatamis na saging is a popular dessert made from plantains and sugar. It is so easy to prepare and cook, you can actually do this while having your meal and right after you finish eating, the dessert is done cooking as well.

Minatamis na saging can also be used to make Banana Con Yelo, a perfect refreshing merienda
and is popular during summer season in the philippines.

The basic ingredients of this dessert are bananas/saba (plantains), brown sugar and vanilla extract. Today I'm going to add calamansi fruit to the to recipe. Calamansi enhances and intensifies the sweetness of sugar flavor and adds a unique taste that makes my version of Minatamis na Saging different from the rest.


INGREDIENTS:

1. Saging na Saba (Plantains)
2. 3/4 cup brown sugar
3. 1 1/2 cups water
4. 3 pcs. calamansi


HOW TO COOK MINATAMIS NA SAGING:

1. Slice the Saba (plantains) in half and put in a cooking pot. Plantains contain a high amount of dietary fibre which helps ensure healthy bowels and reduces constipation. It also has more vitamins A and C compare to bananas.

2. Add-in brown sugar, water and calamansi. Calamansi is a great source of vitamin C which help us strengthens our immune system and cure colds and fever.

3. Cover the cooking pot and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
(set the fire on medium to low)

4. Turn-off heat and transfer to a plate. Enjoy, Bon appetit!
