aka Double Fried Plantains
A plantain is a tropical variety of banana with unique characteristics - some are peachy in color, others creamy white, and some are green. When unripe (the peels will be green, and the fruit really firm), they are vegetal/savory in flavor (and never should be eaten raw at this stage). Once the peels start browning, the starch in the plantain converts to more sugar - rendering the fruit sweeter, and more likely to scorch if cooked. So when looking for plantains, go for green and firm. If you can’t find green fruit, then at least go for the firmest fruit you can.
