Today’s Health Tip

Filed under: General Health, Nutrition

In today’s piece I wanted to give a nice little tip on fruit preservation – specifically bananas.  Bananas are one of my favorite fruits.  Apparently when I was wee little lad I used to stand up in my crib and yell “nanas” over and over to my mom until she fed me some bananas, and that love affair has never ended.  However, unlike most foods, I am rather particular about my bananas; I like them a little green, and once they are spotted brown I simply won’t eat it.  Fortunately there is way to keep bananas at their desired state of ripeness far longer than you might think possible.

Normally bananas are kept in a fruit bowl or hanging from a rack.  While this is fine, if you are like me and really prefer your bananas at certain point in time, then that is far from optimal as they brown quickly.  This leads to bananas simply going uneaten, and I hate wasting food.  A far superior method is to actually keep your bananas in the refrigerator!

Once bananas have reached your desired level of ripeness, simply place them in the fridge in your fruit drawer and they will remain at that state for nearly a week!  The peels themselves will change plenty, turning brown and kinda nasty looking, but the fruit itself hardly changes, preserving that delicious flavor.  Try it out and let me know how it goes!
