HOW TO STORE
Bananas can be purchased underripe, ripe or overripe, according to their color.
They must be stored outside fridge because their taste could be altered by the low temperature.
Some fruits, such as kiwis and apples, produce ethylene, the natural gas of fruit that accelerates its ripening so, if already ripe, it is good to keep bananas away from these two foods.
Most of the time the banana is eaten directly purchased because it is practical to peel.
Lately very widespread are also dried bananas style chips that are practical and suitable to deceive hunger.
Bananas can be used in many other ways such as creating sweet recipes.
