So What's Ginataang Puso Ng Saging?


Ginataang Puso ng Saging are banana blossoms cooked in coconut milk (or coconut cream). “Ginataan” is a Filipino term which means to cook in coconut milk or coconut cream. “Puso ng Saging”, on the otherhand, literally means Banana heart. We all know that the banana tree has no heart but it's called that way because of the shape and color of the banana bud very reminiscent of that of a heart. The banana heart are banana blossoms. These is a bud or flower that will become banana (fruits) later on.
Cooking Ginataang Puso ng Saging using fresh banana blossoms is quite a tedious process .
The preparation involves chopping the blossoms and soaking them in salt for several minutes. This is done to release the sap inside the banana blossoms.
