Dehydrating fruit is such a wonderful way to have several fruits handy year round, not just during its peak season of harvest. Granted, you can get can bananas year round without any real issues. Though much to my surprise the bananas in Alaska went through a phase of being neon green! I couldn’t find a ripe banana if my life counted on it.
I processed 40 lbs of ripe bananas. yep, 40 lbs! One day as I was flying by the produce department in a panic need of finding the restroom, out of the corner of eye I spotted a discount sign on some boxes of bananas. Sale?!
Oh dear, my pit-stop to the lu was detoured. I quickly pulled myself up the stack of boxes. $5 a box! $5 bucks for 40 lbs of RIPE bananas! I was dancing in place, really needing to relieve myself but to excited to leave my find and risk someone else stealing them away from me. What was a girl to do. Lu? Bananas? Lu….bananas. Well, you can see who won!
I heaved the box up into my arms, the box pressing heavily into my bladder…I waddled my way to checkout stand. Made my steal of a deal purchase and made my way to the car. SCORE! I was so excited about those darn bananas that the fact that I really needed to use the restroom eluded me. After a 15 minute drive home, I carried my box in the door and without even kissing my husband I handed him the box and ran down the hallway. Aaaah, mission accomplished!
Now what to do with 40 lbs of bananas that are extremely ripe! Banana wraps make for a wonderful dessert.
