Banana Spring Rolls A.k.a. Turon

By Invisiblestilettos
Good day darlings! Today we're going to make another Filipino dessert/snack.  I love how summer makes the two ingredients of this recipe so abundant (and cheap if you're going to buy them) you can literally make them everyday!  We've got banana and jack fruit trees in our small piece of land that always gives us fruit every summer and I always look forward to it because that means when there is banana and jack fruit, we can make our favorite turon!Banana Spring Rolls a.k.a. Turon
For this recipe, you will need:1.  Spring roll wrapper2.  Bananas (saba)3.  Sugar4.  Jack fruit, deseeded.Banana Spring Rolls a.k.a. TuronFirst, get your bananas.  I like my bananas super ripe, sweet but a little sour.  Some prefer their bananas a little bit unripe and firm but they're a bit bland for me.  Peel the bananas then slice them lengthwise.  Get a plate and pour a nice bed of sugar.  Place your bananas on the plate then coat all sides with sugar.Banana Spring Rolls a.k.a. TuronGet a spring roll wrapper.  Place two slices of sugar-coated bananas on one end of the wrapper.  If the sugar does not stick too much on the bananas, especially if they not super ripe, sprinkle a bit more.Banana Spring Rolls a.k.a. TuronNext, place as many jack fruit as you want on top of your bananas.  Not only will it add a nice scent to your turon but they will make it super yummy.  For me, turon is not complete and of course special without the jack fruit. Because we harvested the jack fruit ourselves, we've got plenty of them so we went a bit overboard on the jackfruit ;)Banana Spring Rolls a.k.a.

Repeat the steps for all remaining bananas.  It should look like this after you're all done. :)Banana Spring Rolls a.k.a.
