Dangerous to Dentures
So, have you ever tried to cut a green banana for a banana split?
Every week I venture to the store to pick up bananas for my store. Usually I look for a mixture of yellow and maybe a few greenish so they can ripen over the next couple of days. Last week the store only had some severely green bananas. These ones here are what they look like 5 days later. Yep, still green. So can you imagine how green they were on the day I bought them!
Needless to say, peeling these suckers back to “split” them for the banana split was no easy task. Now, I’m a pretty darn good banana peeler if I do say so myself. With one quick pull I can skin the sucker and slice and put in the banana boat in like 2 seconds flat. Not these suckers. They were cocooned in tight, not quite ready to be a butterfly. Holding on for dear life as if they were afraid of the tummy monster.
Oh no not the vanilla!!
First it took like 7 hacks to peel it back. Then I needed a banana extractor tool to plop it out the peel. I never knew a peeled banana could be used as a hammer. Those suckers are hard!
Moral of the story….
Only eat really green bananas if you have really, really strong teeth and machete to hack em!
