Bananas

Do you wash your bananas once you bring them home from the store? Do they turn faster after washing them?

I wash ALL produce - you never know who's touched, coughed or sneezed on them.

Nope just grab one off the trees in the back yard (really I do) and eat them. Talk about fresh!

We bag them in the store, pulling them into the inside out bag. Rinse them at home. Set the green ones in the refrigerator and put some of the ripe ones in the fridge also to slow down the ripening.

Then we add them to our daily smoothies

Since I don't eat the banana peel, the answer is no.
Same with oranges.
Apples are a different story.

I guess I am of the same belief everything else we buy anywhere could also be contaminated but we don't wash canned goods, meat packaging, cereal boxes, etc, etc. BTW, DW does wash bananas, something we disagree on.

For me it's the issue of contaminates on the skin can be transferred to the inside fruit because I'm touching both the outside (skin) & inside (flesh) when peeling certain fruits. That rarely happens with canned goods, cereals..etc. Although I do wash off the top of a can, so the can opener blade doesn't transfer anything to the contents because it seems there's always some juice that oozes out when using one.

I know!... the media & internet have made me too paranoid. Ironic because, as a kid, I drank water out of a garden hose that came from a cistern (does anyone even know what that is anymore?) that I used to drop dead frogs/bugs..etc, down the hole in the stone slab covering it.

Good topic. I also was not concerned with germs until I got older. I have never washed a banana, but I just might start. I do wash all other produce that I eat the skin. I may begin washing oranges, avocados, etc. from now on. I do bleach my cutting boards etc. Just trying to stay healthy and avoid medical bills.

Well, if you're paranoid so are we because we do the same things for the same reasons.

We had a huge cistern when I was a kid in WV, but the drinking water came from a spring. All of it had to be carried in buckets to the house and there was the "house out back" that was really "uncomfortable" in the winter.

Just my 2c.

There is no way I will attempt to give 'monkey" instructions on eating a banana. You"re on your own..

Stuff with an outer shell/peel/skin that I don't eat - no rinse. Otherwise, yes, rinse before enjoying. 63 and not dead, yet. (-:
