How to boil green banana

Learn how to boil green banana and remove the peel at the same time.


A bunch of green bananas (or the amount required)

Large saucepan with water


Bring the pot with water to the boil then reduce to medium heat.

Place the green banana on a chopping board on its side.

Partially cut the top and end of the banana (not completely off) then score the banana length ways (shallow not deep) so it meets the top and end.

Repeat the above step with each banana

Carefully add the bananas to the pot of boiling water and cook until tender for 20 minutes (prick with a fork to determine its readiness.)
