“This is a side dish, not a dessert. It is delicious with a roast and fluffy white rice. Choose plantains that are VERY ripe. By this I mean so ripe that most people would be tempted to throw them away! The blacker they are the sweeter the plantain. This recipe courtesy of Cocina Cubana/Sonia Martinez/Pascual Perez/Nitza Villapol Criolla cookbook.”
