Yesterday I shared my love of “overripe” bananas on the Plan to Eat blog:
I probably look like a crazy woman when I head to our local grocery store and load up my cart with bags of “overripe” bananas, but because they’re so versatile, I usually buy as many as the store has available.
The funny thing about “overripe” bananas is that they’re really not overripe at all! In fact, bananas aren’t fully ripe until they begin to develop brown spots, but of course most people prefer to buy bright yellow, unblemished bananas, so grocery stores sell the older ones at a steep discount.
So what do we do with all of those bananas?
