Do you have dried bananas in your pantry?

Dried bananas are of interest to the part of the population who love healthy snacks. Suddenly, you will find yourself on a special offer in a supermarket and purchase this exotic fruit at a discounted price. It will be just possible to prepare a healthy snack.

And it is convenient to give dried bananas with you to educational institutions for children because they take up a minimum of space, and they are perfect for a snack (and a healthy one). I love adding dried fruits and berries to yogurt with granola, and my family happily eats this for breakfast.

How do Dehydrating bananas?

Experience has shown that the original taste of bananas determines the taste of dried bananas. It happens that fruits with not very pleasant taste characteristics come in. The degree of ripeness of a banana does not really matter. Just not many greenish fruits are better cut.

Preparing bananas for drying is simple: they need to be washed, peeled, and cut into slices 1/8 inch thick. I prefer to cut in circles, but the shape of the cut does not matter. The main thing is to observe the thickness. If desired, the prepared banana slices can be drizzled with lemon juice to preserve the color of the banana, but this is not always the case. The darkening of the dried bananas does not bother my family.
