"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali
4 Cups sugar 6 Cups water 46 Ounces pineapple juice 6 Ounces frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted 5 Bananas, very ripe 2 Lemons
Mix bananas with juice from lemons. Boil sugar and water for 3 minutes and cool. Combine juices and bananas with sugar syrup. Freeze in large Ziploc bags. I usually double up- just in case. To serve: let thaw 1 1/2 hours and add 3 quarts chilled ginger ale.
