Peel the bananas and split them lengthwise. Melt the fat in a frying pan. Add the honey and approx 2 tbs orange juice. Stir and boil together for a while. Dilute with another 2 tbs orange juice and sprinkle with ground ginger.

Put in the bananas, cut side down. Lower the heat and allow the bananas to simmer VERY slowly, uncovered, for about 10 minutes. Baste occasionally.

Gently lift up the bananas so that they won't fall to pieces, and put them on a warm serving plate. Pour over the sauce and decorate with chopped walnuts. Serve the hot bananas immediately with the ice-cold orange cream.
