Keep Bananas longer………

Keep bananas fresh for longer by wrapping the end of the bunch with plastic wrap. Better yet, separate each banana. Both tactics block ethylene gases from releasing out of the stem, thereby ripening the fruit too fast.

Directions
Yield: 8 servings
Serving size: 1/2 cup

Overripe bananas………………………

 

Overripe bananas can be frozen until it is time to bake. Just store them unpeeled in a plastic bag.

Apples and Bananas don’t play well with each other……………………

Don’t store apples and bananas near each other. Apples give off a gas that makes the bananas ripen (and go soft) much faster! Enjoy that fruit!

Ripen bananas slowly with a banana hanger……………………….

Don’t own a Banana Hanger, invest in one! It will stop your fruit from getting bruised and going bad too quickly. Locate it somewhere that allows for free movement of air around the bananas, this handy hanger will slow down the ripening process. Keep your bunch away from other fruit too – bananas give off gases that cause produce to spoil faster.
