This week's Fresh Deals include: fresh ginger root, perfect for tea, curry, stir-fries, and fresh juice; locally-grown zucchini and creamy Hass avocados, and the current star of the produce section - local finger bananas in 2 varieties! These rare half-sized bananas are a refreshing alternative to the larger supermarket Cavendish bananas, and make for the perfect snack. They have a firm, silky interior, and their flavor is brighter and juicier than those of the Cavendish, with notes of vanilla and honey, too! Talk about a banana flavor explosion.
Selection Tip - these lil bananas have thicker skin than large bananas, so the flesh doesn't bruise very easily, even if the outside looks a bit spotty. You also want to choose bananas that are completely yellow, since any green-ness will mean astringency!
