    When We Keep Buying Banana, Sometime We Forget To Consume At The Right Time And The Outer Skin Becomes Black And Slowly The Detoriation Start And I Am In The Habit Of Peeling Them And Putting Them In A Airtight Container In The Fridge For Priya To Make Banana Cake Whenever She Wants, Now This Is Very Nice For People Who Depend On Milkshakes, Once U Peel And Leave The Banana In An Air Tight Container It Lasts Even More Longer, That Is I Wait For The Skin To Go Black And Only Then If It Has Not Been Consumed I Store It The Way I Mentioned And The Shelf Life Increased By Another 12 Days...sunkan

    Dear Sundari,
    Thanks for your useful tips :clap. Usually we will throw the bananas once the skin becomes black - now you gave the idea to use it. Thanks once again.

    dear latha,
    my ever dearest mam, is a great word, and made me feel so overwhelmed, happy this could help dont know abt the leaf but i think if u wrap it in a plastic thin sheet paper and leave it way down in the fridge it should stay fresh for sometime, sunkan

    hi sunkan,

    Yes banana cakes is an nice alternative. son loves it. but i dont worry my about bananas. FIL loves them..so they dont get black at all...and I never eat bananas :bang

    Regarding leaves there are two ways...one wrapping it in a newspaper...
    another rolling it in a wet towel.

    another is to apply heat. it may change colour but becomes flexible......
