  • The whole banana thing, I don’t get why we only grow cavendish for the masses. Why can’t they use this time to work 3 or 4 different varieties into the mainstream? Why after the 50s did we all go to cavendish.

  • iirc you can speed up avocado ripening by putting them with bananas.

  • Please do the same on guac and avocado! Bananas are cheap, avocado is the real deal!!!!!

  • As the 9th Doctor would say don't drop the banana. Good source of potassium! Before I go and watch other videos, your videos are fantastic.

  • GMO is sometimes required to even get the thing people want. Without GMO some vegetables and fruits don't even look like we're used to seeing them. Besides, if GMO was really unhealthy, they would not be allowed. For example, fake drugs like aspirin and tylenol is sought out and destroyed because that kills you. But GMO's don't.

  • In fact I made bananas with chocolate many times. I usually wrap it all in tin foil and cook at the edge of a campfire. It's a great campfire treat.

  • Well, a real receipe. when the bananas seems just too ripe to be eaten as it. I cook flamed bananas : a little butter in a stove, make the bananas caramelize (without the peel). When cook enough, you can add a little of strong alcohol (Rum, Cointreau, etc... whatever you like). then ignite the alcohol in the stove. serve warm... that's really tasty. and not fake. There's an alternative, in oven, but there you cook the banana cut in its length with its peel, and don't flame them in the oven.

  • the banana peel just have the taste of the sauce... too much sauce, it's the secret to hide no tastes or bad tastes. that's not food, in my own opinion.

  • People unjustly hate GMO. Every bit of vegetables and fruits we have is already a GMO. There's a big difference between 'natural GMO' like crossbreeding and splicing, and 'unnatural GMO' with chemicals and pesticides being spliced into the plants.

  • As a kid , we used to do the chocolate banana thing all the time! Not in the microwave like that, though. We'd put a very sweet kind of children's chocolates in (koetjesrepen) and wrap the banana in tinfoil before sticking it in the oven. The endresult was quite different.

  • The vast majority of people who have problems with GMOs don’t actually understand what GMOs are. All of the crops humans consume are genetically modified. The real difference is how they were made: in a laboratory or on a farm. As you pointed put wild bananas are radically different to domesticated bananas and the same holds true for virtually every other crop humans raise.

  • I just wanna add that the leaf one wouldn't even work as it looks similar to monster deliciosa or other aroids that look similar to it and they require a node cutting to grow but the cutting shown was that of a leaf, not a node.

  • Instead of having a banana in your purse to protect from the sun, why not have sunblock in your purse. And people wont look at you like you've lost your mind.

  • I personally dont have much of an issue with GMOs as we are going to have 2 rely on them more and more as the population grows and as climate change issues continue to rise. I also think you cant lump all GMOs into the same category. Like cross breeding 2 kinds of oranges or something isnt exactly the same as manipulating a plants DNA and adding genes from a completely different type of food like when they added a brazil nut gene into soy beans or watever, I 4got the exact plants involved. Either way though they need more long term studies b4 anything can be said for certain.

  • Thank you 4 exposing these frauds! I just dont understand how people make these fake hacks that can really be harmful and just dont care that they might be really hurting people! Like, why!? For some stupid views!? Humans really disgust me a lot of the time. Also I'm 99% sure bananas are a fruit, not a veggie, but no big deal. Im glad 2 know all these hack videos arent real though. I used to try them sometimes and be so frustrated that my attempts never worked! It never occurred to me that anyone would make videos like that and just blatantly LIE, purposely making hacks they know are BS! I'm lucky I never tried anything dangerous!

  • GMO phobias, why? Everything we eat has at one time or another over thousands of years been modified. Maze (corn), apples, peppers (you can't get to a ghost pepper without modification), and there are thousands of other examples.

  • In the US some of us put chocolate, marshmallows, and red hots inside a banana, wrap it in foil, and heat it in the coals of a campfire when camping. It’s a similar tradition to s’mores in youth camping or at least it was decades ago when I was a kid. I don’t recall thinking it smelled bad. I do recall the taste and liked it but liked s’mores better. We called it a banana boat long before I ever heard of suntan oil of the same name.

  • Cooking banana peels isn't as uncommon as you think. In many countries, to eliminate food waste, they cook with everything. It's why their are so many recipes that exist using the "throw away" parts of animals

  • The work this woman is doing is colossal (in the best possibly imagined sense): she not only does killer research (kudos!) and comes up with down-to-earth "classes" in her videos; she is confronting the "farms" along with whoever and whatever may be behind them. She is like a lone hero trying her best for at least a few (ten-? hundred-?) thousands to see what YT and other platforms have become. All this without calling revolution or screaming death to capitalism. BRAVA!

  • I must have been watching this, when I fell asleep. Because I had a dream about a guy putting banana juice on his face, for health. But the guy in my dream, was spinning the banana in a mechanism, to get the juices to the tip (real dream) . Hmmmmm.... #1, .... not gay. #2, I don't believe in most "natural cure" videos. #3, (I just made and ate pop-tarts for the first time in 30 years.)
