How to stop chopped banana going brown: M&S finds the secret

20 May

Its tendency to rapidly brown and turn to mush has long divided public opinion on whether sliced banana has a place in a classic fruit salad.

But now Marks and Spencer has developed an advanced method for keeping them firm and yellow, with the help of a secret housewives’ trick.

The discovery, which comes after years of testing, has prompted it to add bananas to its classic fruit salads for the first time.

As home cooks who make fruit salads know only too well, using banana can prove tricky as it quickly discolours when its skin is removed. 

The old housewives’ method to avoid this is to drizzle the slices with lemon juice, which slows the aging process as it is acidic.
