Happy Banana Hacks

? ➡️ ? ➡️ ?
One usually lands up buying unripe bananas so they last longer but if not consumed in time, this potassium rich fruit can get overripe and mushy. How frustrating!

Now what?
Well, you can bake a banana cake or loaf with these brown bananas but if you don’t want to…what a waste!

Can science help solve this problem?
?Yes! Did you know that bananas contain a chemical compound called ethylene, which causes them to ripen faster?
?Ethylene is a natural plant hormone and when this gas is released, it speeds up the ripening process.

Simple hack…
?So the trick is to wrap the banana stems in plastic (cling wrap) to slow the process of ripening because the stems contain the most ethylene.
?Pulling the bananas apart and wrapping each stem separately could be even more effective!

Two more tips…
✌️Hang them separately – don’t mix your them in your fruit basket.
✌️Pop them in the fridge as cooler temperatures tend to slow down the ripening process. (You could also freeze them to enjoy a delicious banana smoothie later.)

Quick trick…
? If you need to ripen an avacado, simply put it in a paper bag with a banana and let the ethylene gas work it’s magic! Time to enjoy your guacamole 🙂
