In my house once the bananas look like this nobody will eat them.
So what do we do with them?
But, sometimes or often times when you realize the bananas are past their prime
you don't have time to make the banana bread.
Sometimes when they begin to have some brown spots,
nobody wants to eat them fresh anymore...
into a smoothie
wash, cut the tops off and freeze individually on a cookie sheet.
Once frozen they pop off easily and I put them in a ziploc.
This way you can use what you want, and not have one frozen blob.)
I defrost the bananas on the counter.....
they turn brown, and juicy and are quite unsightly at this point
pop them right into your banana bread mixture
nobody will know the difference and the bread/muffins will taste great.
Blueberries, boysenberries buy them when their cheap.
Eat what you can.
Freeze the rest!
Remember the most expensive food is the food that goes into the trash!!
Have a great weekend!
