Due to recent high winds from Hurricane Issac many banana trees were blown down before their fruit had a chance to fully ripen. A quick drive around the neighborhood produced several stalks of free bananas for the taking. These stalks can weigh upwards of 30-50 lbs -- now that's a whole lot of bananas!
What to do with that many bananas before they go bad?
1. My favorite use of the green ones are to make french fries.These can be frozen for future use. When cooked the taste is indistinguishable from potato fries.
2. The firm ripe bananas are used for drying into banana chips
3. The soft ripe bananas are mashed for banana nut muffins.
I have created Instructables for all three uses of bananas.
