How can I prevent my bananas from rotting?
Cut bananas should be kept covered for as long as possible because they will begin to oxidize once they are exposed to air. with this dish, we accomplish that by smothering our banana slices with whipped cream and pudding. These layers form a seal that stops air from entering our slices and oxidizing them. Before layering, you can add a little lemon juice to your slices if you want to take an extra precaution to stop them from browning.
Can Banana Pudding Be Frozen?
Banana pudding freezes poorly. Making this dish right before serving shouldn’t be an issue because it is so easy to make! You can rely on there being no leftovers.
Storage and preparation advice
Store leftovers or prepared food in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. In order to prevent wilted, blackened bananas, it is preferable to limit storage to a maximum of two days. Any longer will result in the bananas losing moisture and starting to oxidize. If you don’t like soggy cookies, attempt to complete it sooner (we doubt that’ll be an issue), as the cookies will continue to soften with time (similar to an icebox cake).
