Plantains! Oh, so yummy! I've never had them prepared in a way that I didn't like, but I've really only scratched the plantain surface.

We had them today sauteed in a mixture of butter, brown sugar and rum.

Wikipedia has a list of very tasty looking ways to prepare them, with the Venezuelan yo-yo topping my list of must tries.

I love all of the awesome fruit available this time of year. We had huge blackberries two weeks ago, and peaches (and cream) last week. We even picked blueberries, though they were still slightly pink . . .
Are ya hungry yet?


  1. My kids think they are baby bananas.

  2. I love mini bananas too. It's been a while since I've them though.
