AFF Thailand: Gluay Cheum

This Bananas in Syrup was tempting while perusing ThaiTable website.   Even more tempting was the recipe only ask for 3 ingredients, 1 part sugar to 2 parts water, and of course, the bananas.
I only did half a recipe., so below is the modified version.  Once Gluay Cheum has cooled down to slightly warm, I tried a piece.  It was not sweet at all, and the banana was a bit chewy.  However, the texture turned very chewy at night.
