Ripe and Ready

Ripe and Ready

Everybody loves it when their fruit and vegetables are ripe and ready to go for baking and meal preparation. Here are 3 tips on how to ripen your favourite ingredients!


Place your unripened bananas on a tray and bake in the oven at 120C for around 30-40 minutes until black! Now they are perfect to add to your banana muffins! You can also try a similar method with Avocados. Wrap your avocado in aluminium foil and bake in the oven at 100c for 5-10 minutes.


Use a paper bag to ripen your fruit or veg! Paper bags trap the ethylene gas, which ages the fruit or veg, and as a result it speeds up the aging process.


Try placing the fruit in dry rice. The rice also helps to trap the ethylene gas and therefore speeds up the ripening process.
