Did You Know-Bananas
Did you ever buy bananas at the store and wonder why the stem end was wrapped in plastic wrap, like my picture above?
The plastic wrap helps contain the ethylene gas, which bananas produce naturally while
they ripen. Wrapping the stem end will help to slow down the ripening process.
Foil can also be used to wrap the end tightly to slow down the ripening process.
When I have other fruit that needs ripening, I will put an unwrapped banana with it to ripen my other fruit faster.
