Bananas

About

We’ve been out to the Dominican Republic ourselves to meet the Fairtrade co-operative Banelino. Everyone gets a fair deal, with good working conditions and pay for farmers and workers alike. Imported by boat (never airfreighted), it takes four or five weeks for the bananas to travel from the tree to your fruit bowl – by which time they should be just ripe. Rather than pursuing the perfect bend or length, varieties are chosen for their sweet, creamy flavour.

How to prepare

Of course these organic bananas make a brilliant portable snack – nature’s packaging at its best. Don’t let overripe bananas go to waste; they mash best when their skins begin to speckle. Use in banana bread, muffins or cakes, or blended into smoothies.

Storage

Bananas will continue to ripen in a fruit bowl and will cause other fruit to ripen faster.
