If you want a real Jamaica treat, there is nothing that beats rummed bananas. My friend Virginia Burke introduced them to me in the hills above Ocho Rios. She baked them on a traditional jerk pit. The taste of this dish will always bring back the memories of that afternoon in March and our friendship and laughter. Kevin Brauch, The Thirsty Traveler
