    (or something much stronger...) We were off this evening...DH got in the car, turned the key it turned over and then quit. His guess is that it's the timing belt, and we're PRAYING it didn't affect the valves. So, tomorrow I am getting a ride from a neighbor at 6:40 a.m. to the local town...

    Fortunately for me, my wife is on the Atkins diet. I bought 5 lbs of bananas last week (she can't eat them) and they are getting ripe. The following, after the picture, is how I made this from scratch. Banana pudding, (well, pie filling, but I won't tell) 2 1/2 c milk 3/4 c sugar 1/4 c...

    Well, I have 3 lbs of bananas in the dehydrator. I tried to keep the chips a uniform thickness, but I was not very successful. I dipped the chips in lemon juice before drying. I did make one mistake: I forgot to refrigerate the lemon juice after I opened it about two weeks ago. I put it...
  4. Bananas
    Someone gave me an entire case of bananas. They are just getting ripe. I thought I might freeze some. Should I wait until they are pretty ripe or freeze them now? How do I freeze them? And... How long can they stay in the freezer? Also... Any good idea for using the bananas... Thanks...

    I have been enjoying bananas bought on sale for thirty-nine cents a pound. They are the only fruit I really enjoy that I can't grow.(where's global warming when you need it) They are usually fifty-nine cents. I consider this to be way too much money. My brain tells me that four pounds a week...

  10. Bananas
    We went to our local tailgate food give-away this morning and got 4 clear boxes of mini bananas. They are sooo cute! LOL. And still so green! So, I will set them aside for a couple of days until they ripen up a bit. I've never had the mini bananas before, so I am anxious to try them.

    I've read that bananas can be mashed and frozen to use later in baking. Has anyone ever tried this? If I used it later to make banana bread, would it have the same taste/texture as if I had used fresh?

  18. Bananas
    I just started freezing my bananas. I have a couple in the freezer that are about a week old and they are really brown. I squeezed as much air out of the bag as I could. I am wondering if when I defrost them, are they going to be super mushy or will they retain some shape? The recipe I want...
