Need a ripe banana but all you have are green ones?
Here’s how to ripen bananas quickly:
Place bananas in a paper bag with an apple or a tomato.
Fold the bag closed.
The ethylene gas in the apple or tomato will cause the bananas to ripen in about 24 hours.
You can also place a banana in a paper bag with other fruits to ripen them.
