Banana Tips

Peel a banana from the bottom and you won't have to pick the little 'stringy things' off it. That's how the primates do it. Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster

My mother and father raised 7 children on a very low income. One of my mom's tricks with bananas to make them go farther was to buy the bunch with the smallest sized bananas on it. That way we each got a whole banana to eat, but they went a lot further as there were more bananas on the bunch. I also advise you to check out what a serving size is of bananas. I believe it is one small sized banana or half a medium to large one. You may be eating more than you need at one time if you eat the whole banana.

When the bananas begin to get too ripe, I peel them and put them in a plastic container with tight-fitting lid in the refrigerator. They will keep several days before turning brown.

If they turn brown and get mushy, I cut them into chunks and put in a freezer bag in the freezer to use in smoothies or banana bread. When I buy 3 lbs at BJ's Wholesale Club, I divide with neighbors who live alone.

When I buy bananas, I pull them apart and individual wrap them in foil. They will not turn brown in the fridge that way and will keep longer.

Any frugal recipe ideas for banana bread? I do not have stick of butter. Can I use the butter (or really, country crock) from the tub instead?

If you have bananas that have turned brown, and don't have time to make banana bread, blend half one up with an egg and a tablespoon of olive oil. Put it on your hair and wrap a plastic bag around it. Them maybe a warm towel. Leave on for 20 minutes or so. It make a great conditioner.
