I am taking bananas for a trip with a bunch of people. Anybody have any ideas on how to get them to not ripen too fast, so they will last all weekend? How should I pack them in the car?
Bananas always turn so fast! I would buy them as green as I can find them and then try to keep them in a cool place out of the sun.....maybe even in the cooler??? Not sure if this would work or not, but thats the only thing I would know to do! :)

Been a big fan of TOH since I was a young teenager!!! I was sooooo excited to be asked to become a Volunteer Field Editor in June 2013!!
I put mine in the fridge when the weather gets hot and it works so I think the cooler idea is spot on.
Try one of those 'green' bags. They're on TV but I bought a box from Bed, Bath & Beyond. They really work well for bananas. They're by Debbie Meyer. They're just green plastic bags, but whatever is in them keeps fruits and veggies fresh longer.
thanks for all your great ideas!
I can vouch for the separating the bananas hinr...a guy at work told my husband about it and I thought oh what the heck good will that do? Figured why not try it? I did-and by gosh it works like a charm! I've had bananas on the counter 2 weeks or more-the skin turns pretty dark but the bananas inside are still fine......the last ones I had for 3 weeks...thought uh oh-they won't be any good-opened them BEFORE I started making the banana bread and they were PERFECT-yes, real soft and just right for banana bread or muffins but no rotten spots at all!
