Is there a more versatile fruit than the humble banana? It can be sliced on toast, turned into “nicecream”, baked into a cake, blended into a smoothie or enjoyed on its own.
Yet, no matter how many ways there are to eat a banana, there’s only one way to open it, right?
Wrong. Turns out, cracking it open at the stalk and peeling down is actually doing it the hard way.
So what is this better way to open bananas? Well, according to YouTuber Crazy Bananas, whose YouTube tutorial on the topic has been viewed more than 12 million times, you simply flip the fruit upside down.
Crazy Bananas shows us that by turning the banana stalk-side down and pinching the top to split the skin cleanly you can peel your banana with ease.
