Like Patacones, Fried Ripe Plantains is a popular dish that is considered a staple among many in Costa Rica. However instead of green plantains, the main ingredient is ripened yellow plantains. They are served fresh at Blue River Costa Rica Resort & Hot Springs along the Rincon de la Vieja. Let’s discover the taste and pleasures associated with a ripe plantain which will be the color yellow (or can get away with blackened).
Previously we indicated that when peeling the skin off the Green Plantain, as when preparing the Twice Fried Patacones, you will encountered a ‘tacky-stain’ on the inside of the skin. Remember to lather your hands with a teaspoon of cooking oil to prevent the stain sticking to them. This stain goes away as the Plantain ripens and it can be peeled without the sticky stain. There is no need to lather the hands in oil when handling Ripe Plantains.
If you coming to Rincon de la Vieja for a visit to Blue River Resort & Hot Springs soon, then you are soon in for a treat.
