Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Green Plantains
Green plantains are not to be confused with green bananas. Plantains are longer than green bananas, and have a sweeter flavor when cooked. Look for plantains in the produce section at Latin grocery stores.
Tip 2
Note
Use the finest side of a cheese grater to finely shred the plantains. When shaping the plantain balls, be sure to roll the balls into compact balls to prevent them from falling apart when cooked.
Tip 3
How to Peel the Plantains
Before peeling the plantains, soak them in warm water for about 15 min. Then, cut both ends off each plantain before cutting a lengthwise slit in the peel. Release the peel with your fingers by starting at the slit and working your way around the plantain. Dry plantain completely before shredding.
