you want a hot grill with low fire or heat. usually dipped in rum or rubbed with brown sugar will help in searing tge outside to a carmel crispy type outside and soft and warm insides....atleast thats what I like to do

yow herbalist, agreed.

...best thing is to either get real real ripe ones or buy them just how they come and wait for them to get real ripe.

the riper they r the sweeter the cooked plantain will be.

julian slice the ripest plantains you can find. cook for a while in oil over low/med heat, i like to add garlic thru a press and chopped-tiny ginger. Let em fry till a little burnt. cool em on a paper bag. sprinkle a little salt for extra savory sweet sensation. .. love it

brown and bruised-like....like bananas just beginning to turn bad.

always good tricks in the market for picking the best plantains, ground food like yucca, tanyah, green banana, the freshest fish and fruits as well...
(altho my empress swear by green fruit alone)
