Bananas with Rum

From Trader Vic's Pacific Island Cookbook, 1968, p222. Another recipe book from my grandmother, that I can't imagine her cooking anything out of.

Bananas with Rum
2 c. water
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
2 slices lemon with rind, halved
4 slices orange with rind, halved
1 tsp rum extract
6 large ripe bananas
1/4 c butter
2 oz Jamaica rum [per banana?]

Boil water with sugars and fruit until a syrup forms, one that will glaze a spoon. Add extract.
Split bananas in half lengthwise and saute in butter. spoon saauce over bananas and sprinkle a tsp of rum over each half of banana.

Maybe served with vanilla ice cream?
