Minatamis na Saba (Sweetened Saba Bananas)

I tried experimenting with Minatamis na Saba - slightly improving the gooey texture it renders when it's kept for sometime in the fridge. This version may come off a bit too sweet at first, but once you chew on the saba, the acidity of the lemon will balance it out.


Minatamis na Saba (Sweetened Saba Bananas)

Ingredients:
10 fingers Saba, peeled and sliced crosswise, about 1/2" thick
2T lemon juice
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water 
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
1 c sago (tapioca pearls) blanched with boiling water
condensed milk
cinnamon powder

How to do it:
Combine water and brown sugar in a pot and heat to boil over medium heat.
While waiting for the water to boil, sprinkle the lemon juice over the saba bananas. 
Add in bananas and vanilla when mixture boils and turn heat down. 
Allow to simmer for 5-7 minutes or until the liquid is reduced and becomes syrupy. 
Add in sago and simmer for a few minutes more.
Serve it topped with condensed milk and cinnamon powder.
