Lots of Banana Fun – How to Peel Them and What to Make

banana

If you’ve been peeling bananas from the stem, there’s a better way. Monkeys, who know their bananas, use the stem as a handle and pinch the other end to split the peel, as shown here. The peel comes off evenly and cleanly, taking more of those stringy bits with it.

Frozen bananas are great in smoothies and milkshakes and help sweeten treats without a lot of extra sugar. I freeze the overripe ones in the peel, or peel them and slice them and freeze them in a single layer so that they don’t all stick together.
