    Question:Plaintain Stoba (An Antillean Stew)

    Plaintain Stoba (An Antillean Stew) Has anyone tried making this? I'm curious to hear how it tastes, I've only seen plantains before and don't know what they taste like, and would you use canned pumpkin or fresh?
    P.S. I would be making this with either ham or bacon

    There are no reviews, so anyone who has made it hasn't bothered to come back to comment on it.

    Plantains taste only faintly of banana; they have a generic fruitiness to them, but they are starchy and generally not very sweet (even less sweet than sweet potatoes).

    You can use canned or fresh pumpkin, as you prefer - just be sure not to accidentally use a can of pumpkin pie filling, which is pre-sweetened and pre-spiced. If you do use fresh, you will need to steam or roast it, then puree it before measuring.

    I'll take a stab at your question about the pumpkin. In looking at the recipe I believe you would use fresh, cut into 1 inch chunks. If fresh pumpkin is not available, use a hard squash, such as butternut or acorn.

    After reading the recipe I would have to agree.

    Plantains are inedible when raw. When cooked they taste only slightly like bananas and are sweet.

    I also agree that a whole pumpkin is used and cut up in chunks.

    It's an interesting recipe. I like plantains but have only used them simmered in water then sauteed. But cooking it in a stew would be interesting.

    I'm glad you posted this recipe here.

    Good luck making it...

    I am also glad the question was asked and the recipe posted here (I find a lot of new recipes to try in this forum). I would love to hear how it comes out as I might want to give it a try. In the past I have only had fried plantains as well. If you do try this recipe please post a review and let us know what you think.
