Bannann Douce (Sweet Plantain)

Bannann Douce (Sweet Plantain)

 

INGREDIENTS:

3 large ripe yellow plantains. Plantains must be (very) black skinned!
2/3 cup vegetable oil, or lard (to cover half the thickness of plantains in the pan)

 

DIRECTIONS:

Peel and bias cut (diagonal) plantains into one-inch thick slices.

Heat the oil until medium hot — a drop of water will sizzle.

Fry the pieces briefly, about a minute or two per side. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking, turning occasionally until they are brown and caramelized.

 

 

VARIATION: Some people like to lightly roll the plantains in white or brown sugar before frying.
