    Default Need fresh ideas of what to do with too many ripened bananas

    I must say that theladies on this board are the smartest, most practical group of women I have the pleasure to know! That being said, I need to tap into y'all's brain power. Other than banana bread and smoothies (both of which my family is quickly tiring), what can I do with the excess ripe bananas that I end up with week in and week out? I've tried freezing the extra bananas(in the peel, of course), but really don't like the juiciness when I use them later. MyDH requires numerous fresh bananas in his diet due to a potassium deficiency problem, but sometimes doesn't eat enough of them as fast as they ripen on the counter. Any new ideas would be greatly appreciated Elizabeth

    I actuallu slice then and the dehydrate them, I

    usually coat them in a honey for extra sweetness,

    after drying I put them in granola and also give as

    snacks to the kids, bananas are not so cheap at times

    and when I find them on sale I buy pounds of them, I

    also mash them and put into ice cube trays, again with

    a little honey and pull them out to use in baking for

    that extra zing. I have a 9 month old granddaughter

    living with me I also can them with AGAIN honey and

    lemon juice for a yum yum for her! hope this helped

    Take the banana out of the peel, mush it, then freeze it. Then, you

    can pop it out, thaw it, and use it in bread recipes. In the peel,

    they don't freeze right.



    Maybe try cutting the "bunch" back by 1 banana when you buy it, to

    see if you have less left over?

    You can make banana bread in canning jars <let me know if you want the recipe or look them up on the computer> You can make banana fritters, you can slice them and saute them lightly in butter and serve as a side with chicken or even scrambled eggs. You can cut them up and put them in pancake or waffle batter and you can make banana puddings or banana cream pies....there is a website allllll about bananas and the various recipes...i think I just put Banana recipes in the search engine...good luck, have fun !

    When I make pancakes, I've used one small banana instead of one of

    the eggs. It adds a nice flavor.



    There is banana cake, for dessert. I've also sauted them in butter,

    sprinkled with sugar and sauted before, then drizzled with

    chocolate. Yum!

    4375-adc2-98de00dd7117



    Allrecipes.com has a variety of muffin recipes, they would taste

    different from the bread. All kinds of stuff, they have recipes for

    barbecued bananas!



    Non food uses:

    I've heard you could use bananas in facials and hair conditioners.

    Google yields a ton of recipes for that.

    I should of mentioned, it was organic honey

    recommended by my allergist as the honey for you local

    area can prevent some outdoor allergies. I have been

    doing this myself for over 25 years after numerous

    reactions to outside things, and I love to garden, I

    went to my allergist and he stated in each area you

    live in, get the honey not bought in stores and from

    local reputable bee keepers

    To expand on the freezing idea, if your favorite recipe calls for a cup of

    mashed bananas, freeze the banana right in the measuring cup.....then pop it

    out of the cup & put it in wrap or a container, mark the amount, & put it

    back in the freezer. When you're ready to bake, it's all measured!

    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="312441216-13032007">I think the poster's point was honey (all types) carries botulism. It is not safe to give any honey to a child under the age of 1. Organic, non-organic or otherwise... It is better to be safe then sorry.
