Green Plantains and Sweet Plantains

We have plantains growing in the backyard. So many uses for them! When they’re green and not yet ripe, we’ve used them in soups. We’ve made patacones. We’ve ate them as potato chips. We make pancakes with them if you mix in an egg. Seriously the best pancakes ever. Especially when your topless wife makes them. 🙂

And when they’re ripe, we cook them and they’re sweet and delicious. I’m sure there are many other uses for plantains than what we have. But it feels so great to pull them off a plant in your backyard and turn them into something yummy.
