luchanplz asked: hey, planning on buying like lots of bananas and other fruits, like really a lot of them but i have a question, how or where can i store them, so they won't spoil, making them last fresh under a longer period? Can you freeze them? Like, even the bananas?
Well, when most people think bananas are ripe, they aren’t. Ripe bananas are very brown, spotty, and soft. If you go to peel it and hear a ‘crack’ when you pull back, it wasn’t ripe. There should never be any green. Whenever I buy bananas, they always have some green…it’s rare they are actually ripe at the store. So take them home, and to ripen them faster, put them in a paper grocery bag with an apple. To make them last longer and stop the ripening process, leave them on the counter or in crates. Lastly, yes you can freeze them! I actually rarely eat bananas raw, because I buy them in bulk and they always seem to ripen at the same time so I peel them and freeze them. That is how I make most of my smoothies and banana nice cream, I can give you some recipes for that too!
