Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Slower ripening for bananas
We eat lots of bananas at our house, between packed lunches, smoothies, and snacks. Kim C.'s post about the convenience of bananas rings true! Now, if only bananas hadn't doubled in price recently. At least we're not consuming 30 pounds of bananas each week, like Kim's family. ;)
To keep bananas from ripening as quickly, separate them at the top, and keep greener bananas away from more yellow ones. Riper bananas emit more ethylene which causes the other bananas to ripen more quickly.
If you ever do want a banana to ripen more quickly, you can put it in a brown paper bag and close the top. :)
