How To Keep Bananas Fresh Longer

Bananas aren’t as simple as they look. Maybe you buy them a little too green to give yourself a few extra days to eat them. But then, somewhere between that second banana and that last fifth banana they start ripening a little too quickly. Before you know it, you’re faced with the dread half yellow/half brown banana. Too ripe to eat, not ripe enough to bake with.

Did you know you can slow down this ripening process?


Simply secure plastic wrap around the crown of that bunch of bananas. After each time you remove a banana, be sure to wrap them back up.  

Doing this will give you at least another three to four days of delicious non-brownness.
