 Genius Ways To Use Fruit That’s Going Bad

Nuke ‘em.
The fastest way to use fruits that are about to go bad is to cut them up into a glass bowl, add cinnamon, and microwave. “Two bananas and three pears take about five minutes in the microwave—and will taste like the inside of a pie and smell delicious,” You can also core and put a whole apple with cinnamon and a splash of water in the microwave for baked apples.”
Cube it.

Want to make your fruit last and last? “Throw it in a blender or juicer, and freeze in ice cube trays or in small plastic storage bags,  “These ‘fruit cubes’ can then be used for cocktails, smoothies, mixed into oatmeal or to flavor sparkling water.” Feel free to blend up fruits individually, or mix several types together for a “fruit punch cube.”

 Make pancakes.

Give your flapjacks a burst of fruity flavor by mixing in bananas or berries in place of added sugar. Then go easy on the maple syrup.
