Banana blossoms, also known as banana hearts, are large, purple colored flowers that grow at the ends of banana clusters. These flowers are edible both cooked and raw and are commonly eaten as a vegetable in Southeast Asian cuisine. Banana blossoms have a mild, nutty flavor with a hint of banana aroma. They are pleasantly fibrous with a flaky texture that is similar to cooked fish. Banana flowers are quickly becoming a vegan favorite as a meat/fish substitute due to their excellent texture and ability to absorb flavors. These canned banana blossoms are marinated with a variety of spices and capture the essence of fresh banana blossoms regardless of the season.
Uses: Cut up banana flowers into thin strips add to your salads, stir-fry dishes, and soups. Mince up banana flowers and put them in dumpling filling, croquettes, and curries for added texture and flavor.
Ingredients: Banana blossom, water, seaweed powder, salt, rosemary, thyme, pH adjusting agent (citric acid).
