It does work!

Well...I am always on the look out for a cool kitchen tip that might save me time...

or money...

or both..and I found one.

You wouldn't believe how fast bananas turn brown here.

We buy them on Saturday, green as can be, and by Monday they are already soft and have big brown spots.

We've tried those Green Bags and although they kept their color longer, something about the banana changes - Don't know how to explain it, but the banana "feels" different and they tasted horrible....really, really horrible.

I hate to think what ever that taste is, is doing to my health...yuck, yuck, yuck!

On Pinterest I stumbled upon a tip to keep banana fresher, longer - They say cover the top (where the banana are joined) with aluminum. No real explanation why, just that it works.

So I give it a try and guess what? It works!

Well at least on the peel doesn't brown and break down as fast. The fruit itself continues to ripen. But was aren't freezing as many bananas these days....and that's a good thing!

Give it a try!

Aloha a Hui Hou!
