A banana crepe being cooked in a skillet.

Banana CrepesA favorite of many people here on the islands is crepes made with fresh bananas. Once the bananas are cut from the banana plant they are hung upside-down to ripen. Many times we have too many ripe bananas to use. Therefore, we take the over ripe bananas and make Poe and crepes. The crepes are delicious eaten alone or topped with fresh coconut milk.
