    1. In a deep pot, combine all ingredients and cook over medium-low heat until it boils, stirring occasionally.
    2. After it boils cover partially, leaving a good opening for steam to escape, and reduce the heat to a minimum. When the sauce becomes reddish, it is ready.
    3. Serve hot plain or with vanilla ice cream. When cold, store in a glass jar with lid in refrigerator for up to one week.

    Only had 3 bananas so reduced recipe to fit and it worked well. Used ground cinnamon and ommited the cloves but still very tasty with pancakes and ice cream.  -  04 Mar 2014
