Bananas

Postby kate_turner2000 » Wed Jan 17, 2007 9:10 am

I have been loving bananas lately - especially since they have come down in price. last weekend i brought some from woolies and they were so nice. this morning i ran down first thing to the fruit shop and got some bananas and apples and just had a banana and i ended up chucking it out. it was foul! is it possible that its not ripe enough? there are some borwn marks on them but there are some green marks on them up around the tops and bottoms. i hope they arent dodgy because i am craving them and dont want to have to throw them away and make a trip to woolies -30 minutes away to get some! *sob*

it could be that they are not quite ripe Kate, just give them a day or two and check them then....we had the same experience with them just recently...if they are dodgy, ring them up and tell them!!

no worries Kate. I do most of my shopping at Woolies or IGA now and I have given up on the fruit shops...most of the time it doesn't last and it is not that much cheaper than the supermarkets anyway!! What price are you paying at the moment Kate?? We are paying around $2.20 - $2.80 per kilo.

How great is it to have bananas back at normal price! I bought a bunch at my local fruit shop.. they were green at the time but I wasn't planning on eating them for a few days. But after a few days they were still green and I had no other bananas... so I took one to work with me, went to open it and all this gross sticky stuff came out. I almost needed a jackhammer to open the darn thing! Then took a bite and it was like cardboard - I had to spit it out because I couldn't swallow it :shock: So, I had banana cravings for the rest of the morning and had to make a mercy dash to the fruit shop over the road to get some more (got 5 giant ones for $4... only ate one though!!)

The stupid things are still green after about a week and a half! Not sure what to do with them :?

I love bananas too, but dont like them under ripe. The ones I had last week were still green on outside but were ripe on the inside after a couple of days. Very decieving :?

I've gotta have banana on my special k , miss it terribly if I dont eat it at least 3 times a week :D
[no excuses, I can do it!

I'm with you guys! I LUUURRRVVVEEEE Bananas! :P :P

I eat one a day! I find that they really fill me up!

And, it is so wierd, but i am also experimenting on how they taste depending on how you eat them...

ie. Eating them and removing the skin completely... compared to eating them slowly unwrapping them from thier skin!!!

I actually have to have a little 'think' about how I am going to eat them each day!!! My life is getting sadder and sadder! :? :)

Hahahhah Tiffany, you know what's scary - that is EXACTLY the type of thing I would do :P :P You remind me of me soooo much!!! ahhaha you crazy girl!

I haven't had a problem with bananas! Mum came home with a pack of 3 massive organic ones from the fruit and veg on sale for $1.70 or something because they looked like they'd been played footy with, they were that bruised! So we made banana bread, and oh my lord, it was delicious!

OK Tiffany and Em...you two are bananas! LOL...bananas...get it...ok you had to be there. :D A friend growing up used to peel it a little way down, break off about a 1/4 then break it into segments. Yes, bananas have segments they break into three. Then she would eat it like that.

I actually haven't had one yet but they are delish little morsels and I love them with cereal too.
