Banana Saba (2kg per hand)
Why do we use this product?
- This fatter and stubbier banana is of the ‘cooking’ sort, with a firmer, generally less sweet character compared to other dessert bananas. Subjecting it to heat gets it satisfyingly starchy, not unlike a chewier potato—although depending on the stage of ripeness pre-cooking, it can be sweet and tangy as well, especially toward the center. But Saba can also be taken raw when very ripe—it has a sweet, tangy, aromatic flavor and moist, sticky interior while retaining its meaty, leathery chewiness on the outside.
