Got brown bananas? Don't throw them out! Stick them in the freezer!
Yep, brown bananas in the freezer will keep them "good" until you're ready to do some baking with bananas. When you're ready to make bread or pancakes or some other banana-filled goodie, simply take the bananas out, let them thaw, snip off the tops, and just squeeze the banana out into a measuring cup...no mess! And they're SO sweet and give so much yummy banana flavor when they're "over-ripe".
Also, if you like bananas in your smoothies, it's ok to put brown bananas in them. From what I understand, the longer fruit ripens, the higher the amount of antioxidants.
So don't let your kids toss their bananas! Use them to their fullest potential!
You'll be happy you did!
