How To Make Banana Chips for Home-Based Business

Your earnings will depend on how much you can cook. It will take one day to cook 30 kilos worth of banana chips; and if you want to make the sugared kind, you have to cook the bananas a second time, so that takes up another day.

Believe or not, good banana chips are highly in-demand overseas. So be patient in perfecting your cooking skills — you may be looking at exporting your products soon.

Start-up capital is around P500. Time to finish: 1 to 2 days.

Materials Needed

  • 5 to 6 raw saba (plantain) bananas
  • Stove
  • Fryer
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Sugar (optional)

Getting Started

  1. Peel bananas and put them in salted iced water.
  2. Slice bananas into bite-size pieces and lay across a cloth for 10 minutes to remove all moisture.
  3. Heat up the oil in the fryer until smoke is rising.
  4. Fry banana slices in one-layer batches for a minute or two or until crisp.
  5. Lift chips out with slotted spoon and lay on paper towels to remove oil.
  6. If you want to make the sweetened kind, sprinkle sugar heavily on the cooked bananas and leave overnight in a covered container.
  7. Fry again the next day.
  8. Remember to store your chips in an airtight container so that they do not lose their crunchiness.
