DETAILS Green bananas are packed with fibre, pre-biotics, and probiotics, all of which help with digestion. For people with digestive conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, eating foods that aid digestion may be particularly important. In terms of taste, green bananas are a little less sweet than their yellow counterpart. Regarding texture, they have been described as a little waxy whilst composition wise, green bananas are higher in starch. Green bananas contain a high amount of resistant starch and pectin, which have been linked to several health benefits. As bananas ripen, most of the starches are turned into sugar.
STORAGE ADVICE To ensure the optimal freshness and ripening of green bananas, it is essential to store them correctly. Keep green bananas at room temperature until they reach the desired ripeness. However, if you want to slow down the ripening process, store them in the refrigerator. The cold temperature will slow the enzymatic activity that causes bananas to ripen. Avoid placing green bananas near other fruits, as some fruits release ethylene gas, which can accelerate the ripening of bananas. Additionally, it’s advisable to keep bananas in a ventilated space to prevent moisture buildup, which can lead to premature spoilage. By following these storage tips, you can extend the shelf life of green bananas and enjoy them at their peak ripeness.

Recipe for green banana fries

Ingredients

  • 5 small unripe (green) bananas
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil, as needed

Directions

  • Peel the bananas using a knife, as they are not ripe and will not peel like a yellow banana. Slice into long thin wedges or strings to make fries.

  • Heat the oil in a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat. If you have a deep-fryer, heat the oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place the banana fries into the hot oil, and fry until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oil, and drain on paper towels. Pat off the excess oil, and season with salt. Serve immediately.
