What to do with overripe bananas?

Submitted by on January 17, 2010 – 9:25 pmOne Comment

I have never known what to do with overripe bananas, unless I was immediately in the mood to cook some banana bread, make banana pancakes, or something of that sort.

The other day, it occurred to me — hey wait! I can freeze the bananas! They do that all the time with the chocolate covered ones and they turn out great.

The trick is to peel them first. Then — just plunk them in a freezer baggie and you’re done. They actually thaw out fairly quickly (within an hour) once taken out of the freezer. Just a little trick I now have up my sleeve for a rainy day when I am in the mood to use them.

There are cases where more is NOT better, and that is the case here. Go with 3 bananas for this recipe. Suggestion — when bananas start to get “overripe” and you aren’t ready to make pancakes just yet, peel the banana(s). Throw away the peel, and put the banana “meat” into a freezer baggie and freeze. When you are ready to make pancakes, just take the bananas out of the freezer and hour or two beforehand. I wrote a little note on this recently. […]
