CAMPFIRE BANANA SPLITS

"Great for sleep-overs and backyard camping trips. You can even bake these in the oven if a grill or campfire is not available. You can be creative with other toppings like maraschino cherries, peanut butter chips, coconut, butterscotch morsels or caramel."

6 Large Bananas (unpeeled, stems removed)

2 Cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips

1 (10.5 oz.) Package Miniature Marshmallows

Preheat the grill for high heat. Spray 4 sheets of aluminum foil, large enough to wrap bananas, with cooking spray. Slice the peel of the banana from stem to bottom, while slicing the banana inside lengthwise.

Carefully open the banana just wide enough to place the chocolate chips and marshmallows inside the peel with the banana. Stuff with as much of the chocolate chips and marshmallows as desired. Wrap the bananas with the aluminum foil and place on the grill or directly in the coals of a fire. Leave in long enough to melt the chips and the marshmallows, about 5 minutes. Unwrap bananas, open the peels wide, and eat with a spoon. Do not eat the shell. Servings: 6

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN FLAVORED SKEWERS

Save money on expensive pre-seasoned skewers by making your own. This extra step will add flavor from the inside while holding them together for grilling or eating. Making your own also enables you to adjust the seasoning levels to your personal taste. Flavored skewers can add a complementing spice and aroma for cuts of raw fruit or impart complex flavors to the inside of meat and vegetables while they cook on the grill. Consider what seasonings will best complement the foods you plan to skewer and mix accordingly. For fruits you might choose cinnamon oil, almond, cherry, coconut, lime, cloves, rum, walnut etc.... the choices are numerous and limited only by your taste. Experiment to find what you like best. For meats and veggies the oils are not as varied but the choices of herbs more than makes up for that.

Things You'll Need:

1    Dozen Wooden Skewers (not bamboo)

Shallow Rectangular Dish

1/2 Cup Neutral Liquid (water, wine, beer)

2    Tbsp. Seasoned Liquid or Oil (vinegar, liquid smoke, soy sauce, tequila, cinnamon etc.)

1/8 Cup Vegetable Oil

2    Tbsp. Dry Spices

Plastic Wrap

Paper Towels

Step 1   Place the clean and dry wooden skewers in a single layer in a shallow rectangular dish.

Step 2  Add water, beer or wine and the vegetable oil, dry spices  and a seasoned liquid or oil like soy sauce or liquid smoke to the dish and swirl the mixture together.

Step 3  Seal the shallow dish with plastic wrap and leave it on the counter for at least one hour

Step 4  Lift the infused skewers from the marinade and allow the excess liquid to drip back into the dish.

Step 5  Skewer foods immediately or place the skewers on paper towels to further reduce the moisture level.

Another idea for flavored skewers is to use the stem from a rosemary bush. With a sharp scissors, cut several 8-inch-long stems from a large rosemary shrub. Make sure to never harvest more than one-third of the shrub at a time. Rinse the stems off with a cool stream of water. Then, strip the rosemary needles off all but 2 inches of the stem. This remaining tuft of needles makes a nice handle when the skewers are on the grill. Reserve the needles you stripped off the stems or later use by placing them into a resealable plastic bag that is lined with a damp paper towel. If stored in the refrigerator, the needles should stay fresh for two weeks or more.

Complete the skewers by cutting off the end of each stem at an angle. To make kababs, load shrimp, cubes of meat or chunks of vegetables onto the skewer.
