I don't believe those bananas are good for much other than banana bread by now. If they haven't been used up, they are no doubt very black and soft by now.

Good Morning,

Firstly, there is a fruit called a sweet Banana ( platano ) and a South American vegetable called a savoury Plantain ( platano macho ) ... This vegetable is originally from West African Coastal Countries, and was brought to South America by the Slave Traders.

Sweet Banana: I like a home made banana bread for breakfast with an Espresso ...

Savoury Plantains: Tostones, which are a double sautéed plantain, with a very crisp exterior, drizzled with lime juice and sprinkled with salt ...

Then, there is Plantanos Maduros, which are from the over ripe Plantain, and have a sweetness in flavor ... They are usually served with Pernil Pork Roast and rice & black beans in Cuban Miami ... Can be quite tasty ...

Good Post. Thanks.
Margi.

That's where I'm familiar with plantains, from Cuban cuisine. I've never seen them in cuisines other than Cuban, although they're in plentiful supply in mainstream and Latino markets in Los Angeles.
