As I will use plantains in several of my up-coming recipes, and they are tricky to peel, I needed a how-to for peeling them. Here it is!
1. Cut both ends off the plantain. 2. Cut the plantain in half. 3. Make a slit the depth of the skin down the length of each half. 4. Insert your thumb under one of the corners made by the slit in the skin, and peel away the skin. 5. Cut according to recipe directions!
