Directions

For the dish:

Peel the bananas and cut them into 1/4-inch thick slices. Heat a skillet to moderately hot. Place the bananas in the skillet with the butter and brown sugar. When the butter is melted add the chile jelly. Toss the bananas around to coat them. Now add the rum to pan and carefully deglaze. 

Place a scoop of ice cream onto the center of 4 bowls. Arrange the bananas around the ice cream. Drizzle with the chocolate sauce. Serve.

For the chile jelly:

Toast the chilies in a dry skillet until they are very warm and fragrant. Put them in a saucepan with 1 quart of water and simmer on medium heat until the water is almost completely evaporated. Add the currant jelly, honey and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Now remove from the heat and process in a food processor thoroughly. Remove to a clean bowl and cool.

Cook's Note

This will make more Chile Jelly than needed for this one recipe but it can be made weeks in advance and held in the refrigerator. Also it is a good glaze for finishing a grilled chicken or baked ham.
