Default How to eat a fresh banana

Hey everyone, I recently received an interesting email that said: If you peel the banana from the other end, you seldom get the stringy stuff. Thats the way the apes eat them. I tried it -- it works!!! I just make a small cut and peel her from the bottom end. Try it and see for yourself.

Just came across these interesting tidbits:
* The banana tree is not actually a tree; it is a large herb.
* Until the early 1800s, Hawaiian women were not allowed to eat most banana varieties. The penalty for breaking the law was death.

Here's the site address: Learn about bananas on FruitAndVeggieGuru.com

And here is the Nutrition facts label for bananas:
