Quickly Ripen Bananas For Banana Bread

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.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
