Banana Tips, Hints, and How-tos

Use overripe bananas to make delicious banana bread.

Slice bananas with a pastry blender. It makes the task faster, and all the slices are neat and uniform.

If you have an abundance of ripe bananas, put them in a blender with a little lemon juice. Make a puree to freeze and use later for banana bread or topping.

Bananas may be stored in the refrigerator. The cold will turn the skin brown but will not damage the fruit inside. This will also slow down ripening. This is the only way you can keep them for any length of time.

Dip bananas in lemon juice right after they are peeled. They will not turn dark and the faint flavor of lemon really adds quite a bit.

Ripen bananas fast at room temperature in a paper bag.

If bananas have darkened, peel and beat slightly. Put into a plastic container and freeze until it’s time to bake bread or cake.
