|Green bananas just two days ago - ripened into the lovely fruits, below|
I'd love to share a wonderful resource with you. This is for all who live in warm climates and who love to grow their own. I just harvested some rare small bananas from my garden today (unknown variety) and received an email query from a Guild member, asking for an ID on a sour orange someone had given her. She intends to macerate the skin in some fixed oil. I sent her the link with a joke - more info than you ever need to know!
Yummy hand of organic small bananas harvested
today, Dec. 27, 2011 in Miami
- some missing because the cook had dibs.
Imagine my delight, years later, when I got to meet Dr. Morton at several Miami events, and obtained a signed copy of her most well-known work, Fruits of Warm Climates. I've since lost the book, but love that it is available online, free of charge. You can access it here. I hope it is of help to some of you, and that you find the perfect lemon, lime, fig, cherimoya or other fruit here :-)
These bananas will be ripening in a day or two. Banana bread, banana pudding, bananas in the freezer, too!
