Save yourself time and money by buying bananas on sale, letting them brown, and freezing them.
- To start, let the bananas brown. Remove peels and place the fruit in a bowl. Use a fork or potato masher to smoosh the bananas.
- For each cup of mashed banana, add one teaspoon of lemon juice to prevent browning.
- Measure out the desired amount of mashed banana according to your favorite banana bread recipe and either put the measured amount in sandwich bags or small, plastic containers. Freeze.
- When you are ready to bake banana bread, remove bag or container from freezer, thaw, and use.
