See the bananas to the right. You would probably never buy them, but you should. When the skin gets thin and brown, the inside gets soft and sweet and more... banana tasting. Just take a sniff and as long as they smell of bananas and not rotten fruit, they are GREAT to cook with. Just right for banana muffins or banana bread.
The great news is that most people do not think of this. You have probably seen these in the grocery store and they are probably on sale for a fraction of the original cost. Grocers want to make room for the pretty fruit.
All you need do is freeze them for another time of your convenience.... So next time you see a bunch of rotten bananas on sale, next time you have a few that you didn't get around to eating yet... You have my permission to do this
- Cost, like I said, these are usually on sale
- No Wasted Money... If you have a bunch that you do not get around to eating while fresh and pretty looking... Freeze 'em, don;t toss 'em
- Once frozen, they last for a long time (I try not to, but year old frozen mashed bananas have come out of my freezer and delicious muffins have been made)
- They freeze small, mash them flat and they store upright like books... I usually have a half dozen in my freezer at a time
- Easy... there really is NOTHING to this
- 6 Brown Spotted Bananas
- 2 Freezer Bags (sandwich size)
- Peel the bananas
- Put three in a bag (3 bananas makes about 2 Cups)
- Smash them
- Squeeze out the air
- Date the bag with a Sharpee
- Freeze them
- Thaw under running HOT water (only take a couple of minutes)
- Use at your convenience and ENJOY!
