    Bananas
    The banana has got to be one of the best fruits. Not only are they good for you, they cost next to nothing. Last weekend I went shopping and bought 10 bananas and it was only $1.75 or something. Now I really like raspberries, but they cost like $5 for a small container that probably only houses a few dozen of them.

    For the money and taste, nothing can touch the banana!

    I was wrong....
    I just recently found out, that to my astonishment, my whole entire life I was peeling a banana the wrong way. This is from The Infinite Words of Matt Revell

    The Wrong Way:

    1. Hold the banana in one hand with the stalk facing upwards.
    2. Grasp the stalk with your free hand.
    3. Attempt to pull stalk backwards over the convexed side of the banana.
    4. Mutter expletives as you squash the top of the banana after attempting (3)
    5. After some perseverance, open top of banana, peel the three remaining sides and enjoy slightly squashed banana.
    6. Carefully avoid the seed at the bottom by either spitting it out, or removing the end of the banana from its skin.

    The Right Way:

    1. Hold the banana in one hand with the stalk facing down.
    2. With free hand, gently squeeze the tip of banana until it splits.
    3. Use index finger to widen the split until it is possible to peel back the four sides.
    4. Remove the seed which is at the top of the banana.
    5. Enjoy perfectly intact and seedless banana.

    Although mildly interesting... it appears the two of you may have a bit too much time on your hands. LOL

    Bananas are $0.60 LB in my area...
    I hate how they get brown and mushy so fast though...

    Anyone know how to keep bananas from getting so brown and mush to fast?

    Did you know those teenie tiny little black speckles you sometimes see in bananas actually serve no purpose? One of the many useless facts I learned in high school.

    Of course you did, sicko. And I mean that only in the kindest way.

    Maybe I shouldn't have posted that. Now I am worried Snowman will show up and comment on us wasting precious posts talking about bananas, which have nothing to do with affiliate marketing....

    Straighten up people and look busy for gosh sakes. And Snowman, if you read this, I was only trying to call Mr. Sal on treating women like sex objects, not destroy your enjoyment of another informative AM thread. Please forgive me for any invasion of what could ( and should ) have been serious educational affiiliate marketing information absorbtion.

    Store at room temperature. Do not expose the fruit to extreme temperatures. Unripe bananas should not be stored in the refrigerator because the cold temperature will stop the ripening process. Ripe bananas can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days to extend their usage time before they become too ripe. Once they are placed in the refrigerator their peel will turn brown but this will not affect the flesh of the banana. If stored with other fruit, bananas will accelerate the ripening of the other fruit.

    That's not why they make fun of you .
