A bundle for me is about folding 2 large leaves at about to form 1 foot square after removing the middle stem.

Benny - Chris is asking to see a bundle of banana leaves that are available in the market.

Sorry I can't help you from my end, Chris - nobody here would pay for banana leaves, they'd just take them off the plants in their yard, or the yard of a neighbour.

Thanks Momese for the picture. I accidentally saw it at the Fiesta Market, a Mexican market locally.
But I would not buy them because I have them in my backyard although I sulk when my wife wants to have some for her cooking needs.
And that's why I want to grow Balbisiana for its leaves and for its banana blossoms. It's number one!!! The flowers can be eaten . Sooo good if cooked. The fruit can be eaten also but not for dessert. Young fruit is used in salads and the matured ones can be so seedy as big as BB's and that's not so good.
You can also buy the banana leaves at SOME Filipino stores or maybe Oriental stores if you will just ask the counter girl.

Thought this recipe was worth a bump since most of us have enough leaves to spare now.... and I remembered how good it was!
