Here’s something new you might not know about Banana trees.

Bananas are one of the most popular fruits in the world that contains essential nutrients that can have a protective impact on health.

Many people make use of these fruits by turning them into delicious desserts. But, did you know that the banana stem is edible as well? Not only is the stem tasty, but it’s also rich in fibre. The stem contains vitamin B6 and potassium.

The people at Miki Survival Camp showed how the truck of the tree can be cooked and eaten. Firstly, the outer layer of the truck has to be removed to get to its smooth, white core (the edible part). Once done, the truck needs to be cut into small pieces and a thread-like fibre needs to be removed from the core otherwise, it will taste sticky.

And that’s it! All that’s left is to cook it with coconut milk and it’s ready to be served.
