Banana on FIRE !!

Camping is one of the best summer past times! I am fortunate enough to have family that own a lot in a private RV “resort”. (I question whether you can really call an RV park a resort, however, for camping it is pretty high class!) I had the pleasure of teaching my girlfriend’s three young boys all about my FAVOURITE camping treat: banana on FIRE.

It is quite simple. All you need is a banana and your favourite chocolate bar. When it comes to choosing your banana, it is really choice of personal preference, though, the softer the banana, the less likely it will keep it shape once heated. I like my banana slightly green, so that it is still somewhat firm after the cooking process. The same goes for the chocolate bar. If you are feeling adventurist, go with a chocolate bar with hazelnuts or a Skor bar! Yummy….

The cooking is simple! Cut yourself a piece of tin foil, peel the banana and slice it into two. Centre the banana slices in the foil and line the chocolate down the centre of the banana. Roll up your chocolate banana and throw it on the FIRE! I like to let my banana sit in the flame for a bit, to ensure that all of the chocolate is melted. A little burnt chocolate is always good too for extra flavour.

So, the next time you have a camp fire, make sure to set your banana on FIRE!



From Victoria, British Columbia

Kristy was born in the interior of British Columbia, but soon after moved to beautiful Victoria. She considers herself to be an “island” girl and hasn’t (and likely won’t) leave the city she grew up in. After graduating high school Kristy attended Camosun College and then went onto the University of Victoria, earning an Associates Degree and Bachelor of Arts along the way. She now works for a real estate development company in Victoria’s suburbia.

With her spare time Kristy enjoys seeing friends and family, camping, being outside, as well as fulfilling her creative needs by painting, cooking and dabbling here and there with interior design. She also takes time to give back to the community by organizing events/projects that benefit different charities and organizations in her community. As a part of giving back to the community, Kristy volunteers with an agency in Victoria, providing emotional support to those who have been traumatized/victimized. One of her biggest passions is food – whether it be cooking it, eating it, smelling it or imagining it. She chooses to live a more low-carb type of lifestyle and so finding and experimenting with foods that have a lower carbohydrate content is what really gets her excited. With that said though, she does take advantage of what she likes to call, “cheat days”, where she eats whatever carb-filled food she likes. (Everyone needs cheat days…)
