Stringless Banana Peeling

You’ve probably peeled hundreds of bananas in your lifetime. But, have you ever peeled one and not left any strings behind? Next time, try peeling a banana like a pro… try peeling like a monkey. Watch the video.

PS – This is not me; however, I am concerned for this man’s safety since he has band aids in the kitchen.

    This works; it’s so much easier to peel it this way
    p.s. the monkeys on his boxer shorts are a nice touch

    I did not know this – it will forever change the way I open bananas! Like Kristen, I also noticed that the guy had monkeys on his shorts.

    When I first heard of this, I did try to peel it that way, and still ended up with strings. Pinch the tip was never in my instructions before. Pinch the tip sounds rude, by the way.

    There are some primates that don’t know that trick of opening a Banana by pinching the blossom end. They bite into it to open it, or they use their sharp little nails to cut into the skin and peel it back.

    Yes, it peels easier, but you are left with the dark blossom end, which is disgusting. I still peel them from the stem end. I like them before they are too ripe, and the stem just snaps, and peels no problem, and you can then use the rest of the peel as a “handle” and peel it down as you eat, and then toss the dark blossom end with the peel.
