Love banana bread and banana muffins, but hate the bother of waiting for the bananas to ripen? Try this instead...buy a large bunch of bananas and let them get fully ripe. Peel the bananas and then mash them all in a large bowl.
Now, take 1 cup measures of the mashed bananas and put each cup into a separate plastic baggie and freeze. That way, when you need mashed ripe bananas for recipes, it's all done and all you need to do is reach into the freezer!
