    My husband made the mistake of buying them green so the consistency was off. But we know next time that buying them black is MUCHO IMPORTANTE!! Very good recipe, fried plantain is awesome and I'm greatful to have a lo-cal method to cook a treasured treat! - 5/24/09

    I love fried plantains, and this is a good lo-cal version. I added a little nutmeg, and sprinkled some of the sugar and spices on them while they were browning. I used raw sugar instead since I don't like splenda. - 2/11/09
