Well, I'm happy to see this video. Even got to have a little 'chuckle' listening to the narrator...I'm married to an African and this has taken the "I don't know what to do with it" out of my cooking now. So thank you for your easy, lighthearted approach to this unfamiliar food - the plantain.

personally,i serve plantain as a side dish/dessert for breakfast/ make it a dessert, after cutting the plaintain sprinkle demerara sugar on the plaintain and fry.this adds extra caramel on the outside and sweetens the plantain in a better way.
