    Thumbs Down Plantains

    I had the displeasure of eating a plantain. It looks like a larger banana (insert juvenile humor here ), but it tastes nothing like. You have to wait until it turns black (for the sweetest flavor) and then cook it like a potato (it is too tough to eat raw). It stinks up the whole kitchen. I could not eat more than a bite of it, it tasted so gross- like sweet potato + mold.



    Anyone else ever eat them?

    Yeah, some supermarkets here actually sell them like bananas, as if they were interchangable. It wouldn't suprise me if they considered them as extra-value size bananas

    They were fairly tasteless (uncooked) and tough as well.
    Not something I would everythink to myself - "Mmmm...I could really go a Plantain now"

    You're not supposed to eat them raw. I find they are rather dull when boiled. However, they actually taste very good when fried in honey or maple syrup until the sugars caramelize, which makes them into a sort of candy. (I discovered that myself when trying to figure out how to get rid of a bunch of them that I had bought.)

    Yes, but this is Scotland. Apart from curry, most people here have little knowledge of ethnic foods

    My favourite ethnic food is the deep-fried Mars Bar.

    Your a man of refined taste
    Being the heart attack capital of Europe is a small price to pay for such culinery delights

    I'm North American. I guess I just don't get it

    As for plantains, if you don't cook em right, they taste terrible. But I guess that goes for most things...
    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
    Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. (John 1:1-4)
