My ex-wife won a blue ribbon at the state fair for her banana bread. She told me it was important to have bananas that were very overripe, almost completely black.

Interesting. My mom waits until the bananas are brown/black, then freezes them until she has a chance to make the banana bread. I did this the first time I tried her recipe, but when the bananas were thawed, they became liquid. I was too scared to use them.

My ex didn't freeze them.

I leave my bananas until they're black for banana bread too, so that when you do mash them they turn into a liquidy mush. They impart a lot of sweetness and that rich banana flavor the longer they're left to ripen.

Freezing then defrosting and using them for baking is perfectly fine, even if they do get seriously mushy!

Haha! No, she didn't use any that had the skin split. I know it sounds kinda weird to use overripe bananas, but she did win the prize.
