What a wonderfully cheap source of potassium and fiber. Just wish I could eat 'em without getting grossed out by the slimy texture. DH eats one every day. I can eat them IN stuff, just not alone.

When we ended up with a large amount from a big breakfast, I sliced them thinly and dehydrated them. Really good and crunchy.

Major discoloration may have one or two interior discolorations, but those can be easily trimmed off if they bother you. The rest of the flesh is just fine and is generally ready for use in freezing or baking.
You sound like my mother Selkie.
OK.......the day before it gets any little spots is the day for me.
I guess I just don't like a perfectly ripe banana.

Blend them till smooth with some yogurt and honey and freeze in popsicle molds for a yummy frozen treat. You can also blend them with milk and add condensed milk for sweetness, also delicious :)

The only thing I can say is buy less or eat more, if they get too ripe for you to eat then make milkshakes. I don't think you can slow bananas down.

Bananas have to be mostly green for me to eat them...I eat them green and Shrek eats them ripe,,,so they last for both of us and I buy bananas every three days.

I used to prefer them on the green side, but now I like them yellow. Too much brown on the peel and they are usually softer than I like for eating. Especially on cereal.

Sorry for the late reply. I have been dealing with power outage due to Irene... finally gave in and drove an hour to my parent's house for hot water and electricity after 14 hours without electric.

LMAO... I will send them to Banana finishing school!.. or I can use them as condom demonstrators (I'm in the health field.. mainly HIV.. so I tend to think that way!) :)

Thanks for the ideas on freezing them. I have frozen strawberries... so does one peel the banana prior to freezing? I would think I would peel them and cut them and ziplock it and freeze it?

I don't like banana bread :) I work too much as is, I barely have time to cook dinner :)
