Brûlée Banana Split

bruleed banana split

Do you have a special place from your childhood that your mind wanders to from time to time? I do! I come from a large family of six boys and me. I am the oldest, and the only girl. Lucky me, huh?! Needless to say, this made one-on-one time with our parents difficult at times. Some of my fondest memories were the one-on-one times I spent with my father. Small moments like learning more about who my parents were beyond the everyday moments of being parents stand out in my mind. My dad was a master fly fisherman, and he also was one of the few craftsmen left in America who completely hand crafted and sold custom bamboo fly rods as a hobby. These were truly labors of love from hand planing the large pieces of bamboo that would arrive at our home, to gluing and kiln-drying the entire finished product. There were many more steps to the process, but my favorite step was when he had completed a rod and tested it in our backyard...the fluid motion of his hand combined with the whooshing sound of the lines, so graceful and fluid. When he had finished testing the rod and was satisfied with the craftsmanship, he would treat us to ice cream. This was not just any ice cream shop. This was “dad’s special” ice cream place. The ice cream tasted better than any other place I knew--soft and creamy, full of flavor. The most important part of the memory for me was, and still is, is that I got to spend time with my dad.

Create special moments with your loved ones over Brûlée banana splits, perfectly complemented by our Vanilla sugar. Our Vanilla Sugar is made from Kosher Certified Organic Cane Sugar blended with the Tahitensis species of vanilla beans from Tahiti and Papua New Guinea.

Assembly:

Slice the mini bananas lengthwise leaving peel intact. Place the bananas on a baking sheet and sprinkle 1 tsp. of vanilla sugar on each half of banana. Using a Brûlée torch, slowly caramelize the sugar until it is a deep golden brown. Set aside and let the sugar harden.
