Fruits of banana are appreciated their excellent flavoring and nutritive properties (B6 vitamin regulates a metabolism, potassium – water-salt balance, sugar – promotes fast saturation). As practice shows bananas, like other fruit, it is quite possible to dry in house conditions. Correctly dried up fruits can remain within a year. Necessary conditions – the constant temperature and good air circulation.
1. For drying select ripe not bruise fruits. Clean them and cut as it is pleasant to you more - lengthways bars or across rings about 0.5 cm thick. Small bananas can be dried entirely. The easiest way of drying - in the sun. Lay out the prepared bananas on a lattice or a grid and place in well aired place so that to provide air circulation from all directions. From above cover with a mosquito net. Periodically overturn. Necessary conditions - air temperature are 25 - 30 degrees and low humidity.
2. The following method – drying in an oven. Advantages of a method – independence of weather. Place the prepared bananas on a lattice. Don't spread them too densely to each other, leave the place, for air circulation. Place a lattice in an oven. Leave a door of an oven a little slightly opened. Establish an attemperator on value 50 - 60 degrees. Time of drying of 4 - 6 hours. If in the course of drying water droplets began to be formed, it is necessary to reduce temperature. Periodically overturn banana slices and change the provision of a lattice. Spread out completely dried slices in the small portions in plastic bags. Place bags in cardboard boxes. You store at a temperature of 24 - 30 degrees no more than 1 year.
3. It is also simple to prepare "from bananas. Slice bananas from 1 to 2 cm thick. Prepare 2 - 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Dip slices of banana into lemon juice, and then spread on the baking tray laid by paper for baking. Previously puncture paper in several places for ensuring the best air circulation. You dry in an oven of 8 - 10 hours at a temperature of 60 - 70 degrees. Leave a door of an oven slightly opened. Don't forget to overturn periodically.
