Do you end up with over-ripe bananas sitting on the counter and wonder what to do with them? Banana bread is the perfect use for your old, brown bananas. In fact, they are even better for baking when they are past their bright yellow prime because their starch has converted to sugar and the fruit’s acidity has increased, adding depth and fullness to their flavor. Using these ultra-ripe bananas in your bread will give this treat a soft texture, deeper aroma and sweeter flavor. Try this recipe the next time you buy a few too many bananas, and everyone will thank you for it.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
