I found the best deal in town last week at the grocery store. Giant Eagle had bags of ripe, ready to eat or bake, bananas. Since banana bread works best with bananas just past their prime, it was perfect. And only .99 cents for about 3 pounds of bananas!
And I found out from my domestic goddess mum that you can mash bananas up and freeze them if you don’t have enough time to bake the bread!
