they are close to the bananas.
bigger and hopefully darker.
you want them to be dark for a banana.
if they are not dark you want to keep them on your counter until they are.
good plantains are mastered through the super ripe plantains.
once they are ripe:
peel and cut into diagonal and thick slices.
pour some oil in the pan. (enough to cover those jokers)
getting warm and sizzly.
toss in your plantains.
it takes about 4-5 mins on one side and 3 on the other.
you want them to start to look golden-ess.
remove them and place on a paper towel.
sprinkle with lots of powdered sugar.
enjoy a new fruit for dessert!
