Joy Ripe Orinocos!

I've been eating some of my Orinocos that have gotten too ripe to cook and man are they great!!! I'm so gonna be hating life when I have to go back to the crappy store bought one's. These are the one's I posted a pic of in my gallery a few weeks ago sitting atop my fridge waiting to ripen.

I made some great tostones out of some of them the other night and they were great as well. I took some pics of them as they were cooking and my wife heard the camera go off and she said: "What was that sound?" When I told her you could tell she really thought I'd gone off the deep end. Maybe I have, so what?! I'll try to post the pics soon.

You'll love them! When they turn a nice yellow and they yield to pressure when you squeeze them a bit that's when they are ready.

Silly question, but are Orinoco's a plantain or banana???? I've heard it's a plantain, but I've never seen anyone eat a raw ripe plantain... o_O
In PR we fry, roast, or bake green and ripe plantains (boil the green ones too).

Gabe wrote a while back on a different thread there's a difference between a plaintain and a cooking banana. I have no idea what can happen if you eat a plaintain raw & don't want to find out. I do know your not suppose to eat raw however. A cooking banana when ripe can be eaten. :^)

'Orinoco' is not a plantain. It can, however, be cooked when green and used like a plantain. As my original post mentioned, they are quite good as well when allowed to ripen well.

Well, I like it. There may be others that are superior in taste but it's a good one for our area where we have to sometimes endure freezing temps.

Nice to see that people read also what was posted a long time ago. I missed this thread the first time I read the archive, but can clearly remember reading it in the second round.
