Top bananas

A while ago I stumbled across this thing on the internet called a Banana Bag. I remember thinking that if it worked, that could be a really useful thing here in Brunei.

You see, I like my bananas really hard, still a little bit green - and it's only on day 1 of buying them they are like that. They ripe super quickly here and I never have time to finish the bunch before they've gone all mushy. Since there is no secret to stopping them from ripening, we've been baking a lot of banana muffins etc with our black bananas.

Well, that was before!
I decided to give this Banana Bag thing a try and ordered one. You are supposed to keep your bananas in it, in the fridge, and the perfect amount of insulation and air stops the flesh over-ripening, while keeping the skin warm enough to prevent it from blackening. And it works!!

These are my bananas on day 5 after buying them, still looking good and having the perfect consistency! Apparently the bag is supposed to be able to keep the bananas for up to 14 days, not that a bunch of bananas ever last that long in our house, but I believe it!

I'm really pleased I found this great little gadget, it's the little things..!

Just came across your very nice blog when looking to find info on Brunei because my sister is coming there for work in a week or so. I found the info about the banana bag useful and am going to try to find one for myself. I live in Spain.

I'm commenting because it is always nice to know if someone likes what you put up on your site or blog.

Have a nice day
