Well I love to cook and banana flower is my favorite. Takes time and patience to peel the red giant and i royally outsource this part!( Comeon gotta be smart in kitchen). Take out each flower one by one, take out the hard stigma from each and chop takes an hour. I have taken a video but it looks too unprofessional and I gotta give some edits and touches before it is shareable. Til then please check this.
