How to Open a Banana Like a Monkey September 29, 2010

I find this annoying:  Taking a perfectly ripe looking banana,

.

.

pulling down on the stem, and instead of opening easily, it smushes the fruit inside, and splits on the backside.  Grrr!

.

.

For some reason, a mushy banana just isn’t the same.  So here’s a solution: Open the banana like nature intended.  Like the monkeys do!

.

Flip the banana over, and gently pinch the end without the stem until it cracks open.

.

.

Pull the two halves of the cracked ends until the banana peel starts coming apart.

.

.

Continue to peel the banana until it looks like something a monkey would be proud of.

.

.

You will now have, every time, a non-smushy banana with an easy to hold stem.  Feel free to impress your monkey kids and friends with your new trick.

.

Oooh ooooh, Aaaah aaaah!

  1. I always peel my bananas this way too! It also eliminates those banana stringy things since it’s the way nature intended it to be peeled too!
