Mashing Bananas

Elizabeth Yetter
Save yourself time and money by buying bananas on sale, letting them brown, and freezing them.

To start, let the bananas brown. Remove peels and place the fruit in a bowl. Use a fork or potato masher to smoosh the bananas.

For each cup of mashed banana, add one teaspoon of lemon juice to prevent browning.

Measure out the amount desired amount of mashed banana according to your favorite banana bread recipe and either put the measured amount in sandwich bags or small, plastic containers. Freeze.

When you are ready to bake banana bread, remove bag or container from freezer, thaw, and use.
