More of the Backstory after the recipe…
Banana Trees Fruit Plate
- 1 bananas, cut lengthwise and then cut into slices
- 2 thin slices of oranges (unpeeled)
- 8 slices of kiwi
- 1 carrot slice (circles) for the sun or apricots if in season
Take each long half of the banana and gently put on a plate. Separate them a little. Then carefully cut each long piece into slices. It should look like two tree trunks parallel to each other. Place 1/2 of the orange slice at the base of each banana.
At the top of each bananas arrange 4 slices of kiwi to resemble branches and leaves. Place the carrot or apricot circle at the top of the plate to resemble the sun.
Refrigerate till ready to serve.
