Hello!! Me again. These days seems like I made a lot of Thai Sweets. It's fun as well as Western Bakery. However, The reason that triggered me to make this sweet because my sister , Lee, having lots of Banana (home-grown) So I just told her that I will sweetened them. She gave me 2 batches (around 20-25 of bananas). That's why this menu happened. Let's have a look how to make this. Very Simple to make but call for patience
This is Thai Red Sweet Banana (GLUAY CHUEM). I picked the harder ones for plating. Most of them are soft but not mushy depends on how ripe of your banana. I love the soft ones not the hard ones depends on individual preference, eh! Let's see what we need the this dessert
First , Banana (Naam Wa Breed) I don't know whether you will find in Western Countries or not. But you will find this breed in Asia for sure. I believe it's one of the breeeds that you sweeten them and they will turn in Red color. Normally they turn in yellow color. i got 2 hands ( I don't know what they call banana in one unit) They look like hands so I call Hand then. < /b>
Peel the banana peel and all tissue out then cut in half crosswise not lengthwise as picture. Don't make it any smaller it's will get mushy by the time it turns red in case of ripe banana. I used 2 hands of banana. I did twice.
Steep banana in alkaline water around 30 mins or shorter if your banana is less ripened than the pix you saw above or you like harder banana. The banana you saw above in the conatainer that's only one hand of banana. I did it twice.
After 30 mins. Rinse Steeped Banana with water thoroughly. Keep the alkaline water to use with another batch. Save the world by Resuing In the second pix my mom wanted to attribute. So Be my guest , ma'am!!!
After 1 hour 40 mins it has turned red. This is good to go. During Sweetening process, if you see the syrup gets too thick you can fill more water from time to time. But from what I did, I didn't put any more of water.
Good to go , ready to be served. You can use this red syrup to sweeten the second batch. But this second batch will take less time than the first one. It took me around 45 mins to 1 hour. See!!?? Reuse again. Let's save the world
