Fried Plantains

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


Plantains look like bananas and are in the banana family, but they must be cooked before they can be eaten. If your plantains are green or yellow, they will need to ripen at room temperature until their skins turn black before they can be properly fried for this dish.
