I just went through this.  There certainly are some novel ideas in there, such as using banana peels.  I admit I have never given them a second thought.  I'm amazed at the ideas these chef's came up with.

I just find it interesting and amusing at the same time.

@Anna NMaybe you can convince @Kerry Beal to attempt the “Banana Peel Bacon”, she could make a batch and take it to work...🤣
Seriously, there are some nice ‘scrap’ use ideas.

You mean you don't dehydrate, grind, roll, and smoke them?

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

If they find ways to make banana peels good to eat, then great.

Can’t confirm they are good to eat. And they certainly didn’t come from EMP but from the Scraps Book from IKEA. 
 

BANANA PEEL BACON 1 2–3 very ripe bananas, still yellow,
with lots of brown spots
3 tbsp (45 ml) soy sauce
1 tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup 2 1⁄4 tsp (3⁄4 g) chili powder
1⁄4 tsp (1 g) smoked paprika
1⁄2 tsp (21⁄2 g) garlic powder
Remove peels from the bananas (use bananas in baking or smoothies; can be frozen for later use). Scrape off the inside white material with a metal spoon and discard. Cut each peel into 4 long strips.
Put all marinade ingredients into a bowl. Immerse peels in marinade. Let sit for 10 minutes or up to 2 hours.
2–4 tbsp (30–60 ml) grapeseed oil for frying banana bacon
3 Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat for about a minute, and add grapeseed oil to coat the pan. Place the banana peels evenly in the pan and fry for 2 to 3 minutes per side until golden and bubbles form. Remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel. As the banana bacon cools it will get crispy. Serve warm or at room temperature.
