Quickly Ripen Bananas For Banana Breadimage preview

Want to make banana bread but your bananas aren’t quite ripe enough yet? Use your oven to speed-ripen them! Place unpeeled (but not green) bananas on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes at 300 degrees F. The peels will turn black, and the fruit will be soft — perfect for banana bread. Let cool before peeling.
