Myths, Emails and Bananas
My Mother likes to forward chain(ish) e-mails to me.
I’m sure many Mothers do.
Recently, my Mother forwarded one to me titled “Clever ideas at home worth knowing”.
Sounds interesting right? I believe it to be full of myths.
So, I’m testing the “Clever Ideas”.
Take bananas apart at home.
They ripen faster if left connected.
So, I bought a bunch of bananas on Thursday.
I separated half of them and left the rest bunched.
I took pictures 3 days in to the experiment. Notice I am 1 banana short. My assistant got hungry.
I took pictures this morning. At day 5, the bananas that are bunched look the same as the un bunched ones.
Do un-bunched bananas keep better? I’d say there is no difference between bunched or un-bunched (except the counter top space they hog)
What myths have you heard about food or home related items?
