Bananas Ever find yourself with some very ripe bananas that don’t look like they are going to get eaten? Throw them in the fridge where they’ll keep a couple extra days. The skins might get dark and ugly looking, but the bananas the texture and flavor are usually just fine.
If they brown just freeze whole as soon as they brown to use in smoothies or to make banana bread. Simply pull a couple out, let them defrost, and with the peel still on, squish them up real good. Snip the end off and squeeze the mashed banana out.
