Bananas getting spotty and overripe? Time to throw them away?
Stop, I tell you. Stop! While you may see a banana decomposing right before your eyes, I see a banana that is in perfect condition to use as an ingredient. In fact, it’s when bananas are a bit mushy and starting losing their firm texture that they are the sweetest and should be saved and frozen for future recipes.
In fact, I intentionally overbuy bananas so that I have some get overripe. When they hit their prime and start to grow a tad old, I break them in half and throw them in a plastic bag.
There are so many ways to use old bananas. Here are some ideas to get you started.
