Can I freeze ripe bananas?
Absolutely! Once the bananas start to get those brown freckles, It's time to bake with them. If your bananas are ripe and ready but you're not ready to bake, just put the whole banana, in a ziplock freezer bag. Then when you're ready to use them just defrost them in the refrigerator overnight or in the microwave on defrost and your good to go! They will be mushy once they have been frozen and that's normal.
