Kitchen Tip: Baking with Bananas
Everyone knows brown bananas are best for baking. But did you know you can get satisfactory results from yellow bananas, too?
Here's how: about half an hour before you begin baking, mash your yellow bananas thoroughly with a fork. Allow them to sit while you prep the rest of your ingredients. Then, when you're ready to add bananas to your recipe, quickly mash the fruit a second time.
Your pale, semi-firm bananas will become much softer and darker this way. This, of course, means your cake, bread, or muffins will be moist, sweet, and full of flavor - almost as good as if you'd used brown bananas!
