Banana Chips/ Crackers

We started planting banana as our business. Bananas are one of the most widely consumed fruits in the world for good reason. After 2 years it started to bear fruits. Buying and selling become our business we bought bananas from farmers of near barangays.  

How to Make Our Banana Chips

  • Peel the bananas. Place in slightly salted iced water for 10 minutes (note that salt will melt the cubes faster but it’ll stay cold).
  • Slice the bananas thinly. Keep them as evenly sized as possible.
  • Arrange the banana slices on a wire rack. Leave to dry slightly, to remove moisture.
  • Heat the oil. Add the banana slices in small batches and fry for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to add and retrieve the slices.
  • Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper towels.
  • Make the sugar syrup. Add the two sugars, water to a heavy based saucepan. Cook over low heat until the sugar dissolves and thickens into a syrup. Turn off the heat source.
  • Dip the fried bananas into the sugar syrup. Toss well to coat.
  • Arrange on a wire rack covered in parchment paper. Let cool and set.
  • Serve or store. Place in an airtight container for storage.
