It may be just as safe to eat non-organic bananas since pesticide residue only stays on the peel, which you don’t eat anyway. But I have to admit, they don’t taste as good as the organic ones. And I’m not sure why.
I’ve only had organic bananas for about a year now. And I noticed that it held up a lot longer, also. Like, for a few days more.
Here’s a simple desert I made that is not quite the classic Bananas Foster but is definitely inspired by it. Get your sugar fix without the unnecessary added sugar. It’s healthy, simple and umm… looks pretty, too! By the way, every ingredient used here is organic, not just the bananas. But you don’t have to go that route if you don’t want to.
Ingredients: Bananas, Olive Oil, Pure Maple Syrup, Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam, Chocolate-covered Raisins, Mint Leaves
Directions: Slice bananas in half, lengthwise, brush with olive oil and grill. In a pan, heat a small amount of olive oil, then mix in some maple syrup until it’s bubbly. Add grilled banana slices, turning over so both sides are coated with the syrup mixture. Transfer to a plate. Add strawberry (or any fruit) jam and raisins on top and garnish with mint leaves.
