A Quick Guide to Picking the Perfect Plantain

It's simple honestly. We thank God, cause what is life without plantain?

For the sweetest, most caramelized version of plantain - you want to search for it just before it begins to blacken, therefore find a plantain that is dark brown (using the pic below, aim for the 3rd column). This is if you plan to make it within a few days of buying it. Let's say, 2 to 3 days.

No, it has not gone off!

To tell whether it is off, you can feel the plantain - if it's mushy, then pass.

Now how to make it:

I tend to slice it 1cm thick across and fry in shallow oil until it's brown and looks caramelized. My mouth is already watering by the way. Like I emphasize, that simple.
