How Do You Keep Bananas From Turning Brown?
To keep your bananas fresh as you make this pie, purchase bananas that are still a bit on the green side. If the bananas are riper and have brown spots on the peel, they are more likely to turn brown as you work. If you have any lemons, oranges, or pineapples on hand, you could also use the juice from one of these to prevent browning. Use a minimal amount, though, as using too much can change the flavor of the pie filling. Just brush a little bit on the bananas as you peel them.
Why Does My Banana Pie Get Watery?
Often, a pie filling is watery or runny because it was not given the proper amount of time to chill. Make sure the pie filling has a relatively thick consistency before placing it in the pie crust. Ideally, a pie should be given at least two to three hours to chill before being served.
Why Is My Banana Pie Not Setting?
If you try the methods mentioned above and the pie filling is still not setting correctly, try putting it back in the oven for a few minutes to allow the thickening agent to work. If there is excess liquid, this can be drained off before putting the pie back in the oven. Then, let it set overnight to give it plenty of time to completely cool and set it even more.
How Do You Thicken A Pie?
If you find that the filling appears to be runnier than it should be before baking a pie, an extra thickening agent can be added to fix this problem. For blueberry, cherry, or peach pies, tapioca starch is the best option – it works best in pies that will be put in the freezer for later use, as the thickener will not break down as it thaws. For strawberry or blackberry pie, arrowroot is the best option, as the acidity of these fruits will not impact the thickener in any way. Lastly, potato starch makes a good option for all other types of pie. It will also not break down, causing the filling to become runny again.
Should Banana Pie Be Refrigerated?
It is recommended to place your pie in the refrigerator and keep it there unless it is being served. This will help keep the pie filling thick and allow it to be safely consumed longer than if left out on the counter. Loosely cover the pie with tin foil or a different material. Pies can stay good for up to three days, if not longer.
