[QUOTE=Knifegill;1170824]It's kind of fun. So far I've been digging up dandelions. But, gah, the gun people I read up on are into MRE's, these pseudo-food sludge buckets of anti-food.
I also love all the doing nothing. Seems it's a lost art for many. People always want to know what I "did".
I'd rather eat a ton of bananas and be bloated and constipated than eat that fake stuff any day! (Stay on bananas! Stay on bananas!)[/QUOTE]
I had one of those for a hiking trip just as an experiment, so fucking nasty, I had to stop hiking and take a long 2 hours to digest that inedible brick. It took [i]that[/i] long just to get that shit out of my system, and it probably still lingered for days afterwards.
Yeah, and when you say you did nothing they look at you like you're crazy. "Oh, no girlfriend!? Don't go clubbing?" etc;
Where bananas roam free. Gotta say, there is probably a lot of edible plant matter out there. Dandelions actually taste pretty good too.
Doing nothing is a lost art. Embracing the banana however seems to be still going strong.
Bananas are perfect as they are. Yellow, without or with few freckles. Encased in the peel, relatively clean food. Why would anyone want to mess with them?
I only eat ripe bananas. Green ones give me heartburn if uncooked.
[QUOTE=SophieE;1170579]I was thinking of peeling then when overripe, mashing them and adding some kind of starter culture like for yoghurt (I just empty probiotic capsules to make coconut yoghurt), covering it and putting it somewhere warm overnight or for a couple of days like with yoghurt.[/QUOTE]
Pray tell. I have all of this available in my kitchen, and I have never even thought to dare make yogurt myself. I am intrigued. Do share.

Me too. Green ones for some reason make my lips/throat/tongue swell up a little bit, too.
No problem with the yellowish brown ones.
Yeast will ferment a mash of ripe bananas into alcohol. It'll take a fair number of steps to turn that into something drinkable, though.
