  • About


  • 3 small bananas
  • cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon wine
  • Little salt
  • 1 cup double cream


Press the pulp of three bananas through a ricer, vegetable press or sieve; cook with sugar and lemon juice until scalded; cool and flavor with a few drops of vanilla or a little wine, add also a few grains of salt; then beat gradually into a cup of double cream beaten solid with a Dover egg beater. Set aside to become chilled, then serve piled high, in small glasses, with a sprinkling of fine-chopped pistachio nuts on the top. Line the glasses before filling with slices of banana. This makes a particularly good Charlotte Russe filling.
