    The fridge makes them rippen (ripen?) faster

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    Ooh I love them as they are going mushy... full of flavour that way. Hate them when they are hard like bliddy bullets and tasteless. Holds out basket for all ripe bananas pleasy.

    If you put them near oranges you can practically see them ripen - bleurgh!
    Dont buy them very often anymore, fed up of throwing them away, and theres only so much banana custard you can eat!

    Done a bit of research on this and apparently the way to slow down the ripening process is to hang your bananas so they get lots of air around them.

    Apples are the worst things for speeding up ripening.

    Separate bananas ripen faster than bananas in a bunch.

    So one of those banana hanging doohickeys seems the answer. Or get MrPiglet to screw a hook into the wall somewhere.

    Thanks for doing the research. I used to hang them on a hook...didn't make much difference.


    But the banana bread was delicious. :D
