Homemade Green Banana Fritters

We had these green bananas just laying around the kitchen and I figured…hey, it’s just like regulars bananas, right?   The idea came to mind  because I was feeling really hungry and it did not want to buy anything so I made a easy snack.    Though we often use green bananas in our soups, with saltfish or other dishes, when there are ripened I find that they are as sweet as the regular bananas.   I tried to make them all about the same shape, but it did not always turn out that way   I wanted (Sigh).  Nonetheless, it tasted delicious –how would I know for sure? Easy, when the ‘selective eater’ is the first one to stuff their face.

I prefer to use a wooden spoon for my wet ingredients and a stainless steel spoon for my dry ingredients.  I find it easier to use the spoons that way because I feel like the wet ingredients do not stick as much on the wooden spoon and vice versa with the dry ingredients and the stainless steel spoon.  Some might suggest otherwise.
