Bananas are delicious and economical. They should be, ripened at room temperature, and should not, be subjected to overly hot or cold temperatures. Never place unripe bananas in the refrigerator. This will interrupt the ripening process and prevent the bananas from ripening once they are, returned to room temperature.

If you need to hasten the ripening process, you can place bananas in a paper bag or wrap them in newspaper, adding an apple to speed up the process. Here are some of the produce deals around central Ohio for the week of Monday, July 31.
