Turon with Cinnamon



I had friends over at my house last week and I thought of serving them some filipino delicacy. I saw some ripe Saba bananas in my fruit basket and turon first came to mind. I remembered I had a package of lumpia wrappers in my freezer so I quickly thawed it out.

My friends were watching me in the kitchen while I was preparing the turon. I sliced the banana into three equal parts, lengthwise. I rolled one slice over a pre-mixed brown sugar and cinnamon powder, I added a strip of ripe jackfruit (from the jar I bought in oriental store). I rolled it up and sealed the ends of the turon with water.

I didn't use much oil because I only cooked a small batch, reason why it had spots on them, probably from melted sugar at the bottom of the pan.

You know what, my American and Japanese friends loved it. My husband thought it resembled the taste of an apple pie. It disappeared quickly from the table.

You have Saba bananas in your area? Buti ka pa. Kami rito, tsambahan lang kung merong saging don sa Pinoy store. And they don't come cheap!
I miss turon!

@ r2K, Hi!

@ sexy mom, verns, niceheart, mousey, and kathy,

kathy, our oriental store always carry saba bananas, and a lot of other stuff.

Yummy! I'm fond of turon. Cinnamon sounds like a great taste enhancer. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Ang sarap naman. Bakit kami walang saba bananas? Do you get it fresh? I bought frozen but I got so disappointed. Last year when I went for vacation in PI, I ate my fill of saging na saba and I intended to have baon. Imagine my disappointment when I couldn't find my saba in my carry-on or luggage-- naiwan!

hi Anna, gracias! we only have two choices, to be happy and not to be happy...life is too short..hehe.

Turon is so easy to make, yet, so satisfying.

KK, hahahahha, are fruits allowed in the plane? could it have been confiscated in the airport? sayang!

How did you know I love TURON. I am a turon person. Syempre, yung ginagawa ko, langka ang laman. But Cinnamon, ibang klase yan.

Pahagad man daw.
