I'm not very creative when it comes to bananas. I would make "banana scallops" like Richard Blais did on 'Top Chef' a few seasons ago or use them in some other exotic way except, like I mentioned, I am not very creative. When it comes to bananas I use them in one of two ways-- either I freeze them for smoothies or I make banana bread. On this particular day I did both.
Freezing fruit is something I like to do especially when it's a matter of saving it before it eventually gets thrown out because it went bad. It's very easy to do and it's a very nice feeling when it slips your mind that you froze some fruit and then find it later-- it's like a little gift from your freezer.
All you do is slice the fruit, spread the slices in a single layer on a sheet pan, chill it all for about 30 minutes in the fridge and then freeze it for an hour or so in the freezer. Then just bag it, label it and store it in the freezer until you are ready to use it.
Oh, and by the way, everything I know about freezing fruits and veggies I learned while watching 'Top Chef'.
As for the banana bread, well, I decided I needed a little chocolate fix so I used a recipe that calls for some of these...
Here is the link to the recipe I used, but if you already have a favorite banana bread recipe just add some chocolate chips to it for a little twist-- just fold them in after all the ingredients have been combined.
