Make Your Home Better With Bananas

The nutrients in bananas aren't just good for your health, they're good for your home's health, too. Banana peels can act as a natural fertilizer, tenderize your meat and even attract butterflies to your garden! How's that for turning trash into treasure?
Tenderize meat. To keep your roasts moist, place a ripe banana peel on top of the meat before it goes into the oven. That way, you'll be able to cook the meat properly without sucking away any of that juicy flavor! This works for chicken, beef or pork.

    Wow! Who'd have known? Thanks for the info. I'm very curious if it changes the taste of the meat when it's used as a tenderizer?

      Hi @Nancy, I've not tried it. Since the original poster didn't come back and reply to my question after almost 17 months, we may never know.
