Bananas will stay fresh and yellow for 26 days with genius storage hack – no brown spots

are crucial to be aware of when it comes to , and other fresh produce – especially bananas.

Bananas are one of those kitchen ingredients that can ripen in an instant and turn brown and mushy even faster.

If your bananas do not last you a few weeks without going brown, then you’re most likely storing them wrong.

Luckily, a food storage expert has shared a genius hack to avoid browning on bananas even after 26 days.

The majority of banana storage hacks involve using cling film, tinfoil or a wet tissue wrapped around the stem to keep them fresh, however, this method differs.

Taking to her TikTok account @amycrosslegacy where she shares how to buy, clean and store popular fruits and vegetables, Amy Cross shared her jar tip to keep bananas “fresh longer”

For this method, Amy chopped up a banana, with its skin on, and left it sitting in a glass mason jar in her fridge.

Showing the results 26 days later, the banana pieces looked as fresh as ever and the skin was still yellow with no signs of browning.

In the video, Amy said: “These are the bananas I purchased on March 13 and I cut this into thirds and put it into a jar, so they’re 26 days old.

“So the whole goal of putting the bananas in the jar was to see if I can get a cut banana to last 12 hours and it’s been 26 days.”

For those who don’t fancy cutting up their bananas, it is recommended to store them in a cool place protected from the light.

Bananas should be stored at around 12 degrees, as they will ripen quicker if they are too warm.

A darker room without direct sunlight is ideal. A warm kitchen is therefore not the best place for your bananas.

For those looking to store bananas that have been peeled, they should use the juice trick.

Once a banana has been cut and is exposed to the air it will quickly turn brown.

Simply sprinkle some lemon juice or pineapple juice on them – this is particularly delicious in fruit salads.
