But wouldn’t it be nice if they just stayed yellow longer?
Try a hat.
That is, a hat designed to preserve your favorite tropical treat.
This one’s a two-parter: First, place the silicone cap over the crown (where the bananas connect) to slow the absorption of ethylene gas, which is what causes them to turn brown. Second, place the cute knit hat over the silicone one (they secure with magnets). Unicorn and viking or watermelon and pineapple? The choice is yours. Then, voilà! Bananas stay fresh longer—and look great while doing it. Which means you’ll waste less food and money. Yep, all that from a little hat. Made in California. ($25.00 from Uncommon Goods)
what’s the most unusual ‘kitchen tool’ you’ve ever purchased?
“i’m getting so old, i don’t even buy green bananas anymore.”
