So this video has been circulating by Brandon Queen (yes, queen, BRANDON QUEEN!) and there is some controversy about it. He claims that you can revitalize a spoiled banana, with these simple instructions:
HOW TO BRING A BANANA BACK TO LIFE
The first step is to fill a freezer ziplock bag with rice. Put the overly-ripe banana inside the bag and make sure to squeeze out all the extra air in the bag. Let the banana sit in the rice bag for about an hour – this will take out the moisture but the banana will still be brown. Then, take a hair dryer – yes, a dryer – and blow warm air (not too hot) on the brown banana and watch it magically turn back to yellow. Banana restoration!
Except that no one else seems to be able to replicate this nifty trick. Brandon’s video is below and then there are three others after where they try and fail. Some have suggested the trick was accomplished by putting an unripe banana in the fridge causing it to turn black, the rice DOES dry it out and but what the warm blow dryer does, I’m not sure. So, I think it’s safe to say this is an EPIC FAIL. Watch.
