HERE's the perfect topper to cut the salty-spicyness of Romertopf's Beggar's Chicken or Lamb Curry. Be sure the bananas are on the slightly greenish side, much better for cooking, in contrast to eating bananas, which are not ready for consumption until the skin is liberally freckled with brown spots.
Presoak a clay pot, top and bottom, in water for 15 minutes.
Peel the bananas and place in the presoaked pot.
Combine the melted butter, sugar, and
Cover the pot and place it in a cold oven.
Remove the pot from the oven and prepare to serve at the table.
Warm the remaining rum III a saucepan, pour over the bananas, and ignite. Wiggle the pot gently to prolong the flame, then serve with whipped cream. As long as you're not on a diet, might as well go all the way.
