- An almost ripe banana
- Some Vodka (Better quality = better results)
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar
- TupperwareÂ©-like plastic container
The banana needs to be almost ripe in order for the skin to become semipermeable enough to allow the Vodka (ethanol) to pass through it via Osmotic Pressure.
Ethanol is a great solvent for biological molecules.
The sugar will encourage coagulation of the liquefied banana interior.
