Plantains aren't meant for eating right out of the peel, but they are transformed into a gently sweet dessert when caramelized. If you can't find plantains, bananas are just as delicious.

    Ripe plantains just fried in oil are delicious. Not need for all this sugar. Too many calories.

    This recipe tasted great. However, as my first time making it and following the instructions while substituting bananas for plantains, I think I ended up with two much juice. The directions give approximate times and this seems to allow you to adjust times to your taste. Next time I think I will do better and will probably try three bananas instead of two. Maybe I will buy plantains if I see them in the store.
