Plantain – Bananas Caribbean style!

Like a banana right? Wrong! They’re more starchy, not as sweet and totally inedible when raw. We’re not selling this very well, but trust us on this one.

You’ll usually find this sliced up and roasted or fried until softened. Plantain is the perfect accompaniment to rich or spicy dishes and its melt-in-your-mouth texture will have you going back up to the buffet for a second helping.
