Cooking bananas on the fire

PA257078 DOY Cooking bananas on the fire.A

Roasting plantains (bananas) on the fire. A piece of broken glass bottle serves as a scraper to remove the burnt skin. The tongs for handling the hot bananas are simply a strip of bamboo cut flat at the ends and bent in the middle. The cooked bananas have a flavor similar to potatoes -- none of the sweetness of the "banana mau" (ripe banana) varieties. PA257078
