Food Facts

Plantains are ripe when the skin is mostly yellow with a few black speckles. In this stage of ripeness, plantains have lost some of its starch and have become slightly sweet. Ripe plantains are usually pan fried but can be grilled, boiled and baked as well. For recipes that use ripped plantains, pick those plantains that are ripen but not soft to the touch.
