This morning I bought a whole box of bananas for $2.00. They weren't even overripe. The kids have just been eating them straight out of the box and I also treated everyone to a big "Nana Puddin" The kind with vanilla pudding, nilla wafers and bananas.

Any one have any other great recipes for the other 15 pounds?

Poor Ellise, the village chef may not see this thread, as she is out of commission. Hope your better soon good buddy!

Please Do !!! How do you freeze them, do you have to cook them first?

Robin, HI! So sorry I haven't been on much.

Peel the banana and put in a ziplock bag, and freeze whole! Great for breads, smoothies,pies etc... I wouldn't advise eating them from the bag as they tend to have a bite to them.

I'll see what I can find in my file for more Bananas. Oh look in the cookbook I posted Banana Ravioli when I first joined. It is really good!
