2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1 tablespoon minced peeled ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
4 very ripe bananas, mashed until smooth (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons dark rum (optional)
Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ginger, turmeric, allspice, garlic and jalapeno and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring until lightly caramelized, about 1 minute. Add the mashed bananas, vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce and rum, if using, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Scrape the sauce into a bowl, press a sheet of plastic wrap on the top and let cool. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
