Plantains from Becky
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This is one of many versions of Cuban style fried green plantains with the Cuban name Tostones. This version is compliments of Kristine Rebecca Irene Astray-Canada Carryl Waters (AKA Becky) as remembered from her childhood in Florida with a Cuban influenced family heritage. One large plantain will serve 2 people.
2-3 large green plantains
