Fried Ripe Plantains

Plantains also known as cooking bananas are a great snack or addition to a meal. As a child, they were and still are one of my favorite snacks. Growing up in Jamaica, I remember my grandfather having acres of plantain trees and watching the process from small bananas buds to ripen plantains was an amazing experience. They typically have a vibrant yellow color which can be very appealing to birds as well as humans.

This highly starchy fruit can be enjoyed ripe or unripe and have various ways it can be prepared. Plantain porridge and chips are just a few ways this fruit is prepared . Personally, I prefer them ripe because of their naturally sweet flavor, however when I am craving something salty; the unripe ones are just as delicious. Cinnamon, brown sugar or powdered sugar are great ways to their flavors enhancers and per your preference you can add only one or all three.
