Organics Unlimited plantains are a unique food item that can be a great addition to your store’s exotic fruit selection. Depending on your region, customers may not know what to do with the banana-like fruit. Here are some helpful tips and tricks about plantains:
· The more ripe the fruit is, the sweeter it tastes
· Green plantains are great for savory recipes, while ripe (or brown) plantains are perfect for sweet recipes
· Green plantains are very hard to peel. Share this method: Slice off ends of plantain and use the tip of a paring knife to slice through the skin along the curved side
· Green plantains can often be used like a potato. Add chunks to soups or fry rounds in oil and sprinkle with sea salt for a tasty alternative to a potato chip
· Brown plantains are a little sweeter than a typical banana. They taste great pan fried in butter and served over vanilla bean ice cream
· Yellow plantains can also be used. They’re more tender with a creamier texture than the green plantains and can be mashed, baked or grilled
· Ripen green plantains at room temperature for three days in order to achieve a perfectly sweet brown plantain
