So as not to highjack the Boneless Banana thread, thought I'd start fresh. For all my almost 60 years, when eating a banana, I've peeled it from the stem end. Never saw it done any other way. Recently learned that is wrong. If you watch a monkey eat a banana, they peel from the other (non stem) end. Tried this today, and it is so much easier, and you don't get the 'strings' when peeling. My son pointed out that in cartoons they do it this way as well. Whenever someone slips on a banana peel, the stem end is intact. He is now peeling from the bottom as well.
I really need to find a good cook to post.
