We’ve all done it: leaving a banana for a little too long until it’s gone brown or even black. Oops! While it may not look like it from the outside, a brown banana is actually still fine to eat. There’s no need to bin it; just use this trick and your banana will go back to its original colour!
The trick we’re talking about is called the “Zombie Hack” in the video below. In the video, a man named Brandon Queen gives the banana its original yellow colour back again. This is how you do it: put a generous amount of rice in a ziplock bag and put the banana in the bag as well. Close the bag and make sure the banana is more or less covered by the rice. Leave the bag with the banana for about an hour and then return to it, taking your blow dryer with you. Yep, your blow dryer! Take the banana out of the ziplock bag, blow it with the blow dryer (on low heat) and watch the magic happen!
