There’s something to be said about finding a bargain on banana’s. I know in the US, the store Trader Joe’s sells 5/$1 or a pound for a buck. Here the prices range anywhere from $0.49/lb right up to $0.89/lb and even higher for organic. Much to my delight, I spotted the clerk filling up the discount, dent & ding rack so I scooted on over to see what she was putting out.
This mammoth bag of banana’s. I weighed the bag when I got home and counted over 20 banana’s …. for $1.69. That’s right – the entire bag was only $1.69! BTW – The bag weighed 12lb’s. The best part, 90% of them were still firm, green and just starting to go yellow. I’m guessing a new shipment of banana’s came in and there were only so little left from the old that they decided to put it out for clearance? I have no problems with that if that means I can snag such a deal!
After a week, they started turning as we can only eat so many banana’s in a day. I mashed the remaining and froze some and used the rest to make up some wonderful muffins! These baby freeze great as well.
Walnut, coconut, choc chip banana muffins.
Plain old raisin & banana muffins.
Snack time! Nothing like a freshly baked muffin still warm from the oven paired with a nice cold glass of milk. Hey…don’t judge! Someone had to be sacrificial lamb and do a taste test. May as well enjoy myself! 😉 Don’tchas just love great bargains?
