Did You Know? Banana Edition

In the not too distant past, I somehow came across a bunch of online forums where moms were debating the best way to mange bananas for their babies. The complaint was regarding how to best store bananas after peeling them because their babies were only eating a small part of the banana at a time. There were all kinds of methods mentioned, but not one single person discussed the simplest method of all.

Simply cut whatever amount of banana off that you want to use and... leave the rest there. That's it. That's all there is to it.

The end of the banana dries out and seals itself and when you are ready to consume the rest of the banana, all you do is cut or peel off the dried end and proceed as usual. How long will it last like that, you might ask? As long as the banana will last before turning to goo on your counter. Yay for simple answers!

    1. Somewhere I read about cutting banana was not the best because the blade of the knive could spread the preservative product from the surface of the peel into the the banana .... Is it true? From Italy

    2. I have actually never heard of such a thing. I will say that it is always a good idea to wash all fruit before cutting into it (melons especially) due to the possibility of bacterial contamination. However, honestly, I never have thought about doing it with bananas before. But I also eat raw cookie dough, so I guess I'm good with taking some risk here and there. ;-)
