Ripen Bananas the Easy Way

Ripen bananas for holiday baking, quickly and easily.

When you buy a bunch of bananas, it’s impossible to predict if they will ripen overnight or take a week to turn yellow. And nobody wants to eat banana bread that’s been made with unripe fruit.

If you’re in a hurry to get to your holiday baking, here’s a cooking hack that will make things easier.

There’s no need to wait for days until the bananas are ripe. Simply put them in the oven for 30 minutes (with the peel in tact), and you’ll have ripe and ready bananas for a delicious banana bread or banana cream pie.
