Kitchen HACK: Keep Bananas From Turning Brown
This little trick will keep your bananas fresh for 3-5 more days.
Do you like bananas? Chances are, you've probably encountered the banana quagmire.
You buy a bunch of firm, green bananas at the store — thinking you'll have tasty, fresh bananas all week — and before you know it, the whole bunch is brown, mushy, and overripe! Many a brown banana has ended up in the trash, but it doesn't have to be that way. What's the solution?

To keep your bananas fresh for longer, wrap the stem (or crown) in plastic wrap. This blocks ethylene gas, a ripening agent produced by all fruits, from being released. The bananas will still continue to ripen, but at a slower pace. This should give you up to 5 more days to enjoy them!
