    You want banana bread. So you go to the grocery store to buy bananas. But all of the bananas are green and hard. You’ll have to wait days for them to ripen up enough to make the bread, right?

    Wrong! Food & Wine Test Kitchen fruit ninja Justin Chapple has a quick trick that transforms unripe bananas into ultra-ripe, sweet and creamy fruits that are ready to be baked into bread. Watch the video above to find out how he does it.

    Really, what a useless tip. In order to make banana bread, you have to ripen a banana by baking it. And then what do you do. You bake it into bread. What am I missing here? Why bake the banana twice?
