Here’s the 10 Pinterest Cooking Hacks!

HACK #1: Simply wrap the stem of bananas in plastic wrap to ensure they will last longer.

THE IDEA: The plastic wrap is supposed to help contain ethylene gas, which bananas produce as they ripen — causing them to brown over time.DID IT WORK?: Not really. THE RESULTS: By day 4, both sets of bananas had ripened at the pretty much the same pace — with the wrapped ones being only slightly less dotted than the unwrapped ones. All in all: Not a significant difference. 👎 —Melissa Harrison
