How useful banana is
Did you know that all parts of banana are very useful? Fruit can be eaten or used to make cakes, Asian desserts either yellow or green. The banana blossoms/flowers can be used to make salad or cooked which widely used in Vietnamese, Laos, Cambodian and Thai cooking. Leaves are used to wrap things or as a natural plate to get aroma for dishes such as Thai’s Hok Mok Pla, Cambodian’s Amok, Malaysian’s Nasi Lemak and others. Inner part of the stalk is also edible and can be used as vegetable in Cambodian cuisine. How about the trunk? As far as I can recall when I was very young, after harvesting the fruit, I would help my grandmother to cut the trunk into long strip and dry them up and used them as strings.
