FAQs about bananas
Standard bananas are grown with chemicals that protect the fruit from pests and help them ripen. Farmers let organic bananas ripen naturally and rely on natural pest deterrents. Fans of organic bananas insist the pesticide-free fruit tastes better. Organic bananas also retain more nutrients, including antioxidants, than those grown with pesticides. However, as bananas have a thick peel which many people discard, the fruit isn't impacted by pesticides as much as fruits with thinner, edible peels. That's why many people prefer saving their money and buying more affordable regular bananas.
Many people simply discard banana peels, but you can get more value for money if you use them too. Put a banana peel in a pot of water and boil it for 10 minutes. Remove the peel for a refreshing tea that may help you sleep.
Sit your meats on a bed of banana peel before roasting them in the oven. The moisture-rich banana peels prevent your meat from drying as it cooks. Eat the peels as a side or discard them.
You can also blend banana peel into any fruit smoothie. It won't change the flavor any, but it will give your drink a nutrient boost.
Many people freeze bananas to make blended frozen desserts. However, if you've ordered more bananas through Instacart than you need, you can also freeze them for later! There are several ways to do this, and the best option depends on how you'll use them.
If you like smoothies, peel, and slice bananas, then arrange the slices in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for two hours before transferring them to an airtight container. You can also freeze large pieces by putting them straight into a resealable sandwich bag. You can also freeze mashed bananas in these bags. Just make sure to squeeze any air out first. You can also put whole bananas in the freezer. Leave them out on the counter for an hour to thaw before use.
