CARAMELIZED BANANA PEEL SYRUP
At EC Projects, we try to use as much of our chosen ingredients as possible, even the part that we normally deem as 'waste' ! YES this is a banana peel syrup, packed with potassium and tastes just like the rest of it.
Peel of 1 Banana (cut into small pieces)
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Water
Yield: About 250ml
Wash your banana peels and pat dry. In a small pot, heat up banana peels on medium - high heat to release some oils.
Add 1/3 cup brown sugar and stir, until sugars start caramelizing, stirring frequently.
Add the other 1/3 cup brown sugar and stir until sugars are softened.
Add 1/2 cup water and bring to rolling boil. Turn down heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, until syrup is slightly reduced.
Let cool and strain out solids. Bottle and refrigerate, good for 2 weeks.
