What's the best way to preserve half a banana?

I've tried just leaving it in its skin, putting it in a ziplock bag, in and out of the fridge. No results have been ideal.

Freeze it then use it in a smoothie

But what if I want to eat it the next day? It usually goes a bit bruised and meh.

Bananas are like 12p. Just open a new one.

Anyway cut in half before pealing and pop in a resealable bag.

Freezing doesn't brown or bruise them and they are really nice eaten frozen too.

Place the uneaten half into a bottle of mescal.

I've already given the correct answer.

Stick it up your arse.

Put it in the bin, singing, “Nana nana, nana nana, he-e-ey, goodbye”.

One of Bill's Top Tips - to avoid being left with half a banana buy smaller bananas.

Leftover banana can go into curry goat.

10 points. But I'm disappointed that it took 7 posts to get there.

Thanks for the earworm darkhorse.

Fruit in curry? Controversial…

Shove it on the compost heap in the wider public interest.

Why not just eat the whole banana? Or buy smaller ones if it’s too big?

Don't peel it, cut it in half first.

Then with the bit you want to save, rub Vaseline over the 'cut' end and apply a sterile dressing.

Pop the dressed, Vaselined half in an UNFLAVOURED condom. Put this inside a freezer bag of yogurt and microwave on defrost for 2 mins.

Hang the whole thing on a nail outside of your back door and bob's your father's brother.

What were we doing again?

The uneaten banana half could be used to set up a fruit fly farm, very lucrative business because research laboratories will pay big bucks for quality drosophila.

Also, if you have half an arrow why not set up a time fly farm!

The best way to avoid having half a brown banana is to not eat the disgusting things.

I’m with Sinner on this one. Bleugh.
