We don’t have many mountains in England either. There’s some in Cumbria but other than that they’re in all the other home nations.
I know what plantains are, but to be honest I’ve never really fancied one enough to find out how to cook it.
The ones I have seen in shops have all looked a bit spotty, not like bananas which always a bit green. So no, I’ve never been tempted.
I’m not a huge fan of banana in deserts to be honest, banoffee pie is my least favourite dessert. I still eat it, it is a pudding, but not my first choice by any means.
