Green Plantains that have turned yellow....

Once the skin is yellow it has entered the fruit stage.

When they are ripe, it can still be a tasty, and great side dish.

To cook fried ripe plantains, heat up vegetable cooking oil...

enough to cover at least half of the plantain pieces.

Make test your oil for the right temperature, drop a small piece of the plantain in the pan.

If you see it sizzle...bubbling action around the piece, it's ready for the rest of the plantains.

The plantains are considered "maduros" or "amarillos" when the skin is yellow or is yellow with black spots....so,

Keep em theyre still good to cook and eat!

The darker the skin the sweeter the taste of the plantain.

The flesh will be softer even gooey....

To each his ownsome go for different stages of the sweet plantain;)

One of my precious memories was when my mamita use to cook for us.

When I was about 7 years old, she use to cook "maduros" as a side dish for breakfast before we went to school.

Mind you she was a working mommy toowow!

Soo"Amarillos" and eggs....mmmmmm....brings back pleasant memories;)

Buen provecho!
