French Recipe- Poached Bananas

Poached Bananas or- Bananes Pochees is a classic!

Makes 6 servings when served with ice cream, and proportionately more if other poached fruits are being served at the same time.
  Poached Bananas may have a strange ring to it but the secret ingredient I discovered is dark rum. That should arouse your interest!

This is definitely the way to go if you are in a hurry and are using under ripe bananas.

3 large bananas

1/4 to 1/2 cup dark rum, preferably from Martinque or Jamaica  (this is optional but recommended)

Peel the bananas, cut them in half crosswise, and then cut each piece in half lengthwise.Poach the pieces in the simmering poaching liquid for 4 minutes and transfer them to a colander set over a mixing bowl. Boil the poaching liquid down to half its original volume. Put the banana pieces back in, let them cool at room temperature, and then chill them in the refrigerator. Flavor to taste with rum.
