Minatamis na Saging

Our employees loves to shower us with food — from vegetables freshly harvested, native chicken, fresh picked fruits, down to local snacks. One morning, after our driver blessed us with lots of Saba banana, the husband asked me to make him sweetened banana. That’s when I realized that, albeit a childhood favorite, I’m not sure how it is done because I have never made one myself since it has always been mom who does it for us.

So today, I’m sharing with you the recipe to this very simple yet delicious dessert (for all ya who, like me, haven’t tried making it!).  This dessert is not only very easy to make, the ingredients are easily available and affordable, too!
