Soo I have been waiting to begin a banana mono island to start off my low fat high carb raw vegan lifestyle. However I am not to sure if the banana's are ripe yet.. They are really spotty and mostly yellow but the stems are still green and so are their bottoms. As well I ate a few and the skins were quite thick.. I know that banana's need to be spotty but are they ok if a bit of green is still on them??
Hm, the skin being thick makes it sound like they're not ripe yet...but it depends. Sometimes even when there is still green on the stem they're ripe...
I would wait a couple of days anyway, just to be sure.
If once you start your banana island, the ones in the bottom start getting "REALLY" spotty (like almost covering the whole banana) you can put them in the fridge you slow down the ripening process as you make your way through the box :).
Thanks so much, I will defiantly wait a couple days longer :)
Taste and smell, do the smell alcohol?
Sweetness is what you want!
ha I love it! Thanks for the further advice, they ripened up nicely for me - it just took a little longer then I expected but that's fine. I now know for next time :)
