The Correct Way to Peel a Banana?

There is a strong possibility that most of us have been opening our bananas from the wrong end. If we take a good look at our primate friends, we might marvel at their efficiency and shake our heads at the frustrating way we open bananas, by bending, biting, and even digging a finger or thumb into the stem end and many times ending up with a mushy mess. All in all, it is really easier to open a banana from the end-end or upside down end than the stem end. By taking this new approach one eliminates the squashing that usually occurs, and there are fewer strings, and you even have a handle (stem) to hold your banana. Just remember, no matter what your approach, health wise we all benefit by eating at least one banana every day. Good for fiber, potassium and a great way for preventing constipation.

  1. Good banana technique. I approve. You just got out of Minnesota in time to avoid another cold snap. Good timing.
