Caramel Pecan Sauce
# 523 - $8.95

A cooking sauce, a dessert sauce, a quick appetizer and a flavor inspired by the aromas and foods of New Orleans!

Bananas Foster - a New Orleans Classic          Serves 6 to 8

        4 bananas

        1 cup orange juice

        1/3 jar of Caramel Pecan Sauce

          Optional: 1 Tbsp. brandy or orange liqueur

  • Slice bananas into large skillet. Add orange juice.

  • Cook on medium heat, stirring gently to insure that each slice of banana has some orange juice over it - this will prevent bananas from turning brown.  

  • When mixture is hot and bubbling, add Caramel Pecan Sauce and continue to cook and stir gently just until sauce has thickened a bit and bananas are becoming soft. 

  • NOTE:  You can hold the Bananas Foster at this point and reheat to serve later. Just before serving, gently stir the optional brandy into the hot sauce.

  • Serve Bananas Foster warm - over vanilla ice cream!

Serving Suggestions:

 

      Excellent quick appetizer: Simply spoon Caramel Pecan Sauce over cream cheese 

      and serve with a salty cracker.
