Do you have dried bananas in your pantry?
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.
In my recipe below, I offer several options for dried bananas and even fruit peels. You can see a detailed description of this process in this article.
