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.
