I've noticed that storing bananas on the metal part of the washing up area prolongs their life by around 30%

obviously the best method is to hang your bananas is off door handles etc - ie in their natural state, but if you’ve run out of handles, the metal dish draining bit is a superb back up.


#2

I’ve stopped buying bunches of bananas, just pick one up when I fancy one. Slightly more expensive per banana but don’t have to eat any past-ripe/just to get rid of them before they go off


#3

different bananas for different needs innit. green bananas perfectly fine for smoothies etc.

I eat a lot of bananas anyway, so they never go off in chez silky


#4

I like my bananas on the green side anyway tbh, and we get free fruit at work so I normally just fill my boots here, then occasionally I’ll grab one at the tezzers for football/running/before a long bike ride


#5

got one of these

also can be used to hang headphones on.


#6

That is a strong piece of kit.

Save it for tomorrow, mate

super cheap too. Couple of quid from ick-ee-ahh

Thursday is the day of filth


#11

We keep ours in the fridge. They stay fresh for ages. Please don’t hate me.


#12

I don’t understand what is filthy about that though, I’m sorry :frowning:


#13

Seems to be one of the things the hivemind has decided marks you out as being a wrong’un :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#14

Oh don’t get me wrong, I definitely am, but in this instance I honestly am just failing to understand.


#15

Do you take your banana out to rest before eating it. Can see the logic of bananas in the fridge but wouldn’t want to eat a cold one


#16

don’t you worry it might shrink in the cold a bit?


#17

Depends, I actually quite enjoy a cold banana from time to time. Chop a cold one into porridge and you’ve got yourself a party of temperatures with each mouthful. But other times I’ll give it 15 mins to warm up a bit.

Yeah, they come up the width of a biro, but the flavour is intense

Cold hard banana’s
