However, you can remove the skin in a number of different ways. I’m going to show you the quickest way to do so.

Some people prefer to peel off the skin in the uncooked form and then cook the bananas, while others prefer to release the skin by cooking the bananas first.

I’ve tried both methods and use either method depending on the recipe. Ultimately, most people find it much easier to boil the bananas in their skin and then take it off.

To some people this is frowned upon because it is seen as a lazy way of cooking. I dont really care for whether it is seen as lazy, I just want to show you a method that is easier for you.

Start to cut both ends of the bananas, you can remove it in its entirety but I prefer to partially cut both ends, as it comes in handy when taking off the skin.

Next, from the top of the vegetable, lightly score along the skin towards the end tip. Don’t drive the knife too deep into the flesh as this will come off with the external part, simply make the incision with the tip of the knife.

Carefully add the bananas to the saucepan with pre boiling water and leave to simmer under low heat for roughly 20 minutes or until tender.
