Anything that goes on in your life can go here.
WARNING: Mature content possible. Proceed with caution.

Do you start peeling your bannanas from the stem end or from the blossom end?
A. From the stem end.
B. From the blossom end.
C. Both. I usually cut bananas in half and use the halves one at a time.
D. Neither. I usually split the banana in half lengthwise first, as if I were going to make a banana split.
E. I don’t know. I’ve never paid much attention.
F. It depends on what I plan to do with the banana after I peel it.
G. Other

I thought I was creating a poll. But that’s not how it shows up! I wonder what I did wrong?

Used to be from the stem end, because it's easier to open.

Then I realized if you open it the other way it's easier to hold and you get a neat banana peel, so that's what I started doing instead.

Then I stopped eating bananas so I have no idea now.

I grew up always opening from the stem end. But every so often the stem wouldn’t break in the right place, and I’d end up just mashing the heck out of the half of the banana closest to the stem. I have the impression this was usually because the banana was not quite as ripe as I like? I could be wrong.
If I used a knife or some scissors to weaken the join between stem and peel just where I wanted to break, things worked out. But I couldn’t always do that; and definitely couldn’t always remember to.
Then one day my adult daughter was visiting me at my apartment (sometime after her Mom and I divorced), and while preparing a meal or dish requiring some bananas, peeled them from the blossom end! I found out by trying it out, that that was much more consistently an easier way to peel it without crushing the fruit’s flesh.
I felt like I should have guessed. When I worked for Minute Maid, the people who actually had experience in the groves, said that oranges and tangerines are better at the blossom end. (Maybe that’s also true for grapefruit and lemons and limes?)

Too bad! Oh, well.

My technique with grapefruits is to cut them in half and then slice them thin. This gives you some chunks you can chew off from each piece, or suck out the juice and get the exact amount of pulp you want. All other methods you're invariably getting a lot of extra pulp.

Lemons, meanwhile, I use exclusively for their juice in cooking, and what I do there is cut them in half and then squeeze them upside-down -- this prevents seeds from popping out.

You are supposed to peel them?

@s.o.h.:

People usually peel bananas and oranges and tangerines.
People don’t usually peel lemons or limes or grapefruit. Or apples or peaches or melons.
You squeeze lemons and limes.
If you’re going to squeeze the orange you don’t peel it first.
If you’re going to cut the grapefruit into chunks to use in something else you peel it.
Most folks cut grapefruit in half and spoon out the pulp/flesh a spoonful at a time. Xhin doesn’t because Xhin is weird that way. (jk)
If you’re going to use chunks of melon in somethimg you leave out the rind or peel.
If you’re going to sweet-pickle watermelon rind, though, you use only the white part, making sure to leave out any pink or green.
Some people don’t like peel and want their apples peeled.
Some people don’t mind eating peaches or mangoes or potatoes with the peel still on.
I’m in between.
I don’t peel nectarines or apples. I can take or leave the jacket on potatoes.
I prefer peaches and mangoes without their peel.

@s.o.h.:
I baked two bananas tonight with butter, sugar-substitutes, cinnamon, and nutmeg. They were great! Thanks for the idea!

Banana


Was there more you wanted to say, @Brandy:?


Posted Yesterday Afternoon by chiarizio

I like banana’s.

I like banana’s.


What of banana’s do you like?
Their flesh?
Their flavour?
Their colour?
Their texture?
Their aroma?
Their culinary versatility?

I ask because “banana’s” is genitive or possessive.

Maybe you just meant plural. Auto”correct” may have inserted that apostrophe.
But I think most higher primates like all those features of bananas’.

I might bite thru and chew and swallow the peel along with the parenchyma.
But I’d always remove both ends first!
I can’t feature eating the stalk.




Edited Yesterday Evening by chiarizio

I like their taste. One of my favorite foods is banana foster pie from Brennan’s on the French Qtr in New Orleans. It’s the best, cheifsonny will tell you.
