How to Peel the Plantains
For easier peeling, place unpeeled plantains in bowl of hot water; let stand 5 min. Cut 1-inch piece off both ends of each plantain, then make 1 lengthwise cut in plantain peel, being careful to not cut through to plantain. Make second lengthwise cut on opposite side of plantain peel. Starting at top of plantain, slide your fingers under the peel and begin to pull peel from plantain. Use peeled plantain as directed. Or, place peeled plantain in lightly salted water; let stand until ready to drain on paper towel and use as desired.
