Adding a few whole cloves to a batch of this homebrew I've been making from fruit juice really improves it. I got the idea from the pumpkin ale bought at Costco last November, the last bottle of which was finished off a night or two ago.

Really green bananas -- so green they cannot be peeled without slicing them down the middle and gently coaxing the peel off a little at a time -- have a type of adhesive very similar to what's used to stick labels on bottles... and nothing seems to remove it except for the oil from orange peels. Hot water and soap doesn't do anything but spread it around.
