This is a bananas Foster variation of the classic “banana boat” camping dessert that’s made with pieces of chocolate and marshmallow. Start by combining (before your trip) a mixture of 1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark), 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Stir it all up, put it in locking plastic bag and stow. This is enough for 6-8 bananas.
When you’re ready to prepare your dessert, slit the skin of the banana open with a knife, insert a few small pieces of butter or dollops of margarine.
Stuff in a few teaspoons of your brown sugar mixture. I’ll say a small splash of rum plays well here also, but I don’t want any of you folks violating state park anti-liquor regulations. Pretend I never said anything.
Wrap it all up in a double layer of foil and nestle it cut-side-up in the embers (you don’t want any of the good stuff leaking out).
Let it roast 3-5 minutes depending on the intensity of the heat. Remove, cool about a minute and eat with a spoon!
