I did a search and couldn't find a thread about this. The school I work at had tons of leftover bananas from lunch, and we all got some. I have 50 at least. What should I do with them? So far I have chocolate banana muffins and the frozen banana ice cream thing. I am not a huge fan of plain banana bread, but if you have some awesome addition ideas for bread I'd love to hear them!

I also have 11 pints each of cooked corn and carrots from the same source. I would love ideas for them too. I have very limited freezer space, so this gets complicated.


Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

For the carrots and corn, why don't you make soup? They're fairly neutral veggies, should go well in a lot of recipes.

Bananas, hmm... Lots of smoothies, of course.

A friend gave me a jar of banana jam.  Seriously, banana jam!  I had never heard of it before but it is now on my list of favorites.  It has the consistency of apple butter, with a slight aftertaste of lemon juice.  I'm sure there are recipes out there that could make use of your stash.

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.

Dried banana chips?  I wonder if this could be done in the oven (unless you have a dehydrator). 
Bananas foster?  Pudding?  Just tossing out some ideas here.. Cheesy

I will have to try that banana jam.  That and some peanut butter on toast...
