Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port are my top picks for Banana Split. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. The NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 19 dollars per bottle.

NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry

Very aromatic with notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a touch of oak followed by sweet raisins and a touch of yeast. Clean lasting finish. Good now but will reward those allow it to age"". A favorite pre-prandial beverage. Consider it with nuts before dinner as an aperitif, or after dinner with dessert, especially chocolates and fruit-based desserts. Also wonderful on cold afternoons, served with biscotti to dip in ""Italian-style"". "

Instructions

In advance: Scoop out ice cream using a melon baller onto a wax or parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes prior to assembling. In a double boiler (or microwave safe bowl) melt the chocolate until smooth and shiny. Take each segment of banana and scoop out one end using a melon baller (this will hold the ice cream balls). Dip the un-scooped end of each banana segment into the chocolate, then dip into a bowl of sprinkles or nuts to coat. Place chocolate-side down on the baking sheet alongside the ice cream and freeze for 5-10 more minutes, or until chocolate is set. Remove bananas and ice cream from freezer. Place one ball of ice cream into the hollowed end of each upright banana segment. Top with whipped cream and a Maraschino cherry. Serve and enjoy!

Tips

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • If your recipe calls for ripe bananas and you only have green ones, stick the green bananas in a closed paper bag to speed up the ripening process. You can even put an apple in the bag with them since apples produce a lot of the gas that encourages ripening (called ethylene). This process takes some time, of course, so if you need ripe bananas immediately you might give the oven method a try.
