Banana has got to be the grubbiest of all food. My little one holds it in her hands, and squishes it into the day bed. Then it’s squished into her Country Road woollen dress. Of course, I can’t get that out.
But, people, I have a solution. Get your bananas by the kilo at your local farmer’s market – they are selling for around $2 a kilo around our parts – and put them in your oven.
I cut them into thirds, lengthwise (thanks, Nellie, for the inspiration), and place them directly onto the oven trays. I put the oven on it’s lowest setting (I think it’s about 70 degrees on my oven) and put it on for 3.5-4.5 hours depending on the quantity of bananas. Check them as you go, and take them out when they are to your liking.
Voila. Transportable, baby-proof banana. A parenting dream. Easy as.
