    Manami's Note:

    These plantains are a nice change for a sweet dessert. You can get plantains in a South American market if they are not readily available in your grocery store. This is tasty & delicious and they don't get mushy! Source Better Homes & Gardens. Recipe does not include the passive time for the Crema Espesa - that is 24 to 30 hours for the cream to be made.
