Preserving leftover bananas for a short time
My one-year old son loves bananas but can't eat a whole one at once. Short of freezing the leftover banana portion, how can I preserve it for 24 hours or so without it turning brown and mushy? I can't help eat the fruit because I detest bananas!
When I was little, my mother often gave me banana slices in a bowl of orange juice, which I loved. The citrus keeps the fruit from discoloring. Might be easier for your baby if you mashed it. Refrigerated in juice - pineapple if he doesn't like OJ - the other half will be fine the next day.
