I had a bunch of bananas that I was ready to toss. Instead I decided for the first time ever to make banana bread. I never knew how easy it was. I think I'll make another loaf tonight.

I did bake it a little too long. I forgot to use the convection conversion on the oven and I missed the ringer and took it out 10 minutes late.

Thai Fried Bananas are also a good way to use leftover bananas. I have not thrown any out since I started making this, and it only takes about five minutes.

If they get overripe but you don't have time to make the bread, toss them in the freezer. You can also use the frozen bananas for smoothies.

Have you held off on turning your old apples into apple cobbler too? Or skip the extra step of baking the cobbler and just pan-saute sliced apples, butter, sugar, cinnamon (a splash of rum if you're so inclined) and use as a topping for ice cream or pancakes. Or eat by itself. Apple pie filling with out the crust.

I won't mention that it's shameful that the Emperor took this long to use one of the oldest tips on this board....

I'm the cook but not the baker in the family. Other than my wife's cake, I don't make bread, cookies, pies, brownies or other baked goods.

Peel them first. Frozen, they taste like banana ice cream.

Yes, I should have included that tip. You really don't want to try to get a frozen peel off a banana. Uhm...not that I've ever tried that <cough>...

I save/use frozen bananas for banana bread all the time. I freeze them in the peel, then let them defrost on the counter while I'm getting everything else ready, cut the bottom off the peel and the banana slides out into the bowl - it's mushy, so only good for banana bread or a smoothie.

Always ;-)

<I've never had a smoothie.>

Infinite variety, but this is one I drank after dental surgery when I couldn't eat for a few days.

1 egg*
2 cups milk
1 banana
1 tbsp honey

Blend.

* It's hard but possible to pasteurize eggs. I used them as-is (this was about 40 years ago when people didn't worry much about salmonella).

Banana daiquiri ought to do it.

Personally I favor making about three small loaves rather than one larger one.
