Although primarily eaten out of hand or in as part of breakfast and desserts, sweet bananas can also be used as an accent in savory dishes. Fry them, bake them, roast them or puree them, banana is the perfect fruit for every mood!
Store ripe bananas in the refrigerator to prolong freshness. Keep unripe bananas at room temperature until they're ready to eat.
Add slices to cereal, yogurt, or oatmeal for a natural sweetener. Mash them up to make pancakes, muffins, or healthy ice cream. If you have overripe bananas, they're perfect for baking - think banana bread or banana muffins.
