Ripening, or rather OVERripening, a hurry

I have to bake some banana bread tomorrow. I bought the bananas earlier this week, figuring that they would get to that over-ripe, ready to use for banana bread, point by tomorrow (as they usually do). Apparently, I bought the one bunch that WON'T do that. Does anyone have any suggestions for a way to get them to do this by tomorrow? And if not, will my bread still be as good?

  • Need a ripe banana but all you have are green ones?

    Here's how to ripen them quickly:

    Place bananas in a paper bag with an apple or a tomato.

    Fold the bag closed.

    The ethylene gas in the apple or tomato will cause the bananas to ripen in about 24 hours.

    You can also place a banana in a paper bag with other fruits to ripen them
