This is a family favorite. It's very good on toast, especially beer-bread toast. (Recipes available from this site.) Try it with peanut butter for a great sandwich. You can also use it to top ice cream. It's popular with banana-lovers young and old. This can be frozen, but it will darken. As written, it's fine, but you can experiment with spices too. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, lemon/orange peel are all good candidates. Pick one or two for variety.
