Apples are my go to fruit. Next is what ever is on sale. The DH really only eats grapes so we get those when ever possible. I prefer fresh over frozen, but for berries frozen can be so much cheaper and available.

I freeze them al the time, too. I will put them in smoothies and banana bread. They aren't too hard to peel if you let them thaw a little. You can also use a paring knife and they actually peel fairly easily... like skinning the bark off of a green tree.

When I freeze bananas in their peels I just thaw the whole thing and squeeze the banana out like for a banana bread or banana pudding. After a banana has been frozen the peel is very hard to separate from the banana meat. If you want to make banana "ice cream" you have to peel before freezing and put in a freezer bag. Separating the bananas with a piece of waxed paper or something will help to keep them separate.

The nice thing about freezing them in their peels is that you don't have to wrap them; just put them in the freezer 'cuz they're already "wrapped"! But they are only good for mashing when they are thawed.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I dry my bananas. I actually don't like them plain - something about the texture bothers me, but all my boys love them. Occasionally I'll buy extra and dry some for me but they don't last more than a day or 2 because everyone else eats them.
If my bananas get bad, I try to make banana bread. Just tried a recipe with peanut butter the week before last. Couple of days ago I threw a few bad bananas in my batch of pancakes.

Have you tried freezing your bananas? If I get a good price on them, I buy extra, peel, wrap in plastic wrap and put in a freezer bag. You can use them in smoothies, baking, or just eat them frozen and dip in some melted dark chocolate!!

Be yourself, you are unique. Remember there is no one out there more qualified for the job.

I get just about all of my fruit organic and frozen at costco. They have so many different kinds and it stays so long in the freezer that for my family it almost doesnt pay to buy fresh fruit. I do make sure we always have fresh bananas but sadly, half the time I end up throwing half a bunch out because they never get completely eaten. Produce I just started buying at the 99 cents store simply because they get beautiful stuff from US farmers, not mexico or china and I know for a fact they get fresh deliveries three times a week. I bought beautiful heirloom lettuces there last week that were fabulous and if I do have to waste any due to them not being completely eaten, atleast its only a dollar Im throwing away.Produce is too expensive in my supermarket.

Yes! But I'm not very good at it.

It is pretty easy to find most fruits at Costco or your local grocery - as they ship stuff in from wherever. However, if you want to stay "local", it gets real limited here in UT in the winter. Mostly apples, and oranges from a couple states over (AZ or CA) - is that local enough?

THAT is why DH and I should have put up some local fruit - peaches, apricots, grapes, berries, pears, etc. when they were in season here!

I'm just saying... Kelley

I have a lot of frozen or organic berries (yes! My grocer has fresh organic strawberries, raspberries most ofthe time) I like kiwis, grapefruits (hmmm... grapefruit. Get some tomorrow) bananas, apples (always have a bag of apples on hand)... hmmm pineapples
I ALWAYS buy organic produce. If it's not organic, i buy something else that is.

I have a fruit smoothie every morning. It's made with frozen fruit (strawberries, bananas, mango, peaches) and either plain low-fat organic yogurt or a fruit/vegetable juice I get from Costco (or a combination of both). When grapefruit gets more in season, I will eat that too.

I'm on a budget, so in the wintertime I stick to
- bananas
- apples
- frozen berries
- stewed rhubarb (bought frozen) (and its really a vegetable, not a fruit)
- kiwis
- Mandarin oranges
