Ranch Raised with Karina Jones - New Recipe Alert!!!

Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!

You are gonna go bananas over today’s episode, so thanks for joining me right here on Ranch Raised! It has been a while since I have spoken of my love of baking, so when I saw that today was National Banana Day, I knew it was time to launch a recipe that I have never shared!  

Using your over ripe bananas to bake with is a perfect way to add nutrients & sweetness, without sugar, while being frugal and avoiding food waste. I love adding over ripe bananas to pancake or waffle batter to change up the flavor! But nothing beat banana bread or muffins! So here is my recipe! 

Combine the wet ingredients first: 1/3 cup of sour cream or plain yogurt this keeps them perfectly moist, ½ cup of unsalted softened butter, 2 eggs, and a teaspoon of vanilla. Whisk in 2 cups of mashed bananas and then fold in your dry ingredients: ¼ teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 2 cups of flour. No one will be mad if you add a cup of chocolate chips. Bake at 350. I prefer to use either mini loaf pans which bake for around 20-25 minutes or muffin pans which bake for around 15 minutes. Your banana goodies will be done when you can insert a toothpick in the center and it pulls out clean. 

This simple recipe is a great way for new bakers or kids to start creating yummy treats in the kitchen! I will have this recipe and others posted in the Ranch Raised Recipe book on the Your Ag Network app and website!

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.

Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her former role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.

You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.

Cattle producers are her people. She will meet you at the county fair, at the sale barn, or anywhere the dusty trail leads.
