That's a great tip to know, especially considering how many bananas we use. Thanks Yvonne!

use a lot of bananas in my Raw Diet, whether eating them whole, in my Green Smoothies, or Raw Ice Creams so I loved this tip I came across: Wrap banana stems in plastic wrap.

If you cover the crown of a banana bunch (where the stems are) in plastic wrap, the bananas will last longer. Bananas release natural ethylene gas to ripen themselves, and most of the gas is released from the stem. By wrapping the crown, you will prevent some of the gas from reaching the rest of the banana. For a more effective technique, separate the bunch and individually wrap each stem. Bananas on a bunch ripen at different rates, and more ripe bananas release more gas. This method will prevent their off-gassing from prematurely ripening the other bananas.
