How to Peel a Banana, Monkey Style!

Hi Gerry
I must admit I have never ever thought of peeling it the other way.

I have wrecked more than a few bananas when the top is a bit soft and doesn't come apart easily.

Cheers, Steve

How about if you try to open it from the bottom ind it just sqishes the bottom of the banana. Has anyone heard of a knife? Make a cut part though th stem part you are trying to break and no problem.
