I have been experimenting with Banana’s, making fritters/hush puppies, and pancakes. Thought I might try to make Date and Banana Hush Puppies/Fritters. As I dont have a working blender right now, i went ahead and boiled and mashed the dates in water and butter. It is now a Date paste, and delicious. though my wife asked if I was going to add suger, I don’t think so. i will try the banana and date together, without sugar, perhaps adding sugar with a second batch. Don’t judge it by how it looks right now, cuz it tastes delicious!
