Testing Two Egg Openers

Is there a better way to open an egg? Watch as I crack up while testing two egg openers.

Testing a Recipe: Pulled Banana Peel

In this video, I ask the question “Are banana peels edible?” by making pulled banana peel.

Here’s my recipe:
4 banana peels, stems removed, white pith scraped out
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp brown sugar
pinch ground cumin
pinch cayenne pepper
pinch chili powder
pinch paprika
1/4 cup water
3 shakes liquid smoke
1/4 cup barbecue sauce

Shred banana peels with a fork.
Heat olive oil in pan, add banana peels. Stir to coat banana peels with oil. Add spices, stir for a few seconds until spices become fragrant. Add water.

Cook until banana peel begins to soften.
Add liquid smoke. Continue cooking.

Add your favorite barbecue sauce.

Continue cooking until liquid reduces and banana peels are soft.

Serve with vinegar slaw or pineapple salsa.
