Flavors ~Bananas~ 'Sailor Jerry's Spiced Bananas'

Y'all have heard of Bananas Foster. . . the great southern treat. I am going to improve on a tradition by using the suggestions in The Flavor Bible. If such a thing is even possible. The flavors that are recommended with bananas have been capitalized.
First, I am using Sailor Jerry's spiced rum ~ pick this up the next time you see it on the shelf. It has a unique spicy flavor with hints of vanilla. The name comes from Sailor Jerry~ who is apparently a famous Tatoo artist. Every label has a replica of one of Jerry's tatoos.
Sailor Jerry.
Not our Flavors' Jerry.

Sailor Jerry's Spiced Bananas
1 stick BUTTER
2 bananas, not quite ripe
4 Tbs spiced RUM (recommended Sailor Jerry's Rum)
1/4 tsp ground NUTMEG
1/2 tsp CINNAMON
In a medium saute pan melt butter. Slice the firm bananas in half and half again. Add bananas, cut side down and cook until lightly colored. Remove the bananas and set aside.
In the same pan, over low heat, add sugar, rum and coffee. Let simmer for 2 minutes (if you are brave... tilt the pan to side to ignite the rum). Add cinnamon and nutmeg. Simmer until the sauce is thickened.
Add bananas back into pan and ladle sauce over bananas to coat. When serving, spoon sauce evenly over a generous scoop of ice cream and bananas.
The addition of just a bit of coffee, nutmeg and cinnamon only add to the spice of Sailor Jerry. This is a quick dessert that never fails to impress.

Happy Cooking y'all~

"Flavors Bananas" Recipe is good I just want to confirm one thing that if we take raw bananas then it will affect the recipe in positive way or in negative manner. One more thing I am also in cooking business but I make different types of fry bread, if you want you can visit my site.
