Making Bananas Last
If you buy bananas that are “just ripe” to eat and don’t get to them within a few days, they will over ripen. You can only make so much banana bread!
Instead, buy bananas that are not quite ripe, a little on the green side. Take them out of the plastic bag and let them sit at room temperature. If you want some to ripen faster, put a few bananas close to other ripe fruit (apples work well). When they are ripe enough, separate each banana from the bunch. Wrap each individual stem with plastic wrap to prolong their ripening process.
