Just found a link to here from a Palm board I am on

My first banana purchase was a Dwarf Cavendish this past summer then a Raja puri, but I have been eating bananas for about 30 years

Can someone direct me to a thread about "frying bananas"? The banana I am looking for is one that can't be eating without cooking first. Any ideas?

Gracias,

Karel

Bienvenidos Karel,

To me, the best cooking banana variety I know is the Saba. It is sometimes referred to by some Hispanics as "platano burro". It so happens, just now there is a thread regarding recipes for the Saba: Fried saba with condensed milk

The Saba is unlike the plantain sold in the grocery stores. Saba may be allowed to ripen to where the skin is over 50% black, and you can eat it out of hand. I doubt if you can do that with plantain.

There are other threads regarding Saba that you can search thru the search engine of this site. Here's some of them:
fruiting saba
Saba Harvest

Buena suerte,
Chong

Thanks Chong!

Growing up my mom used what she called a Platano Burro to fry up the bananas (and used to allow them to go to black before cooking), but they could not be eaten. They must be two different ones.

I'll avail myself of the search engine to find out

Regards,

Karel
