Very flavorful! I did decrease the amount of cloves because it is not one of my favorite flavors, and sprinkled a little salt on them when the came out of the pan. Made for Best of 2012 Cookbook Tag.

Deeeeeelicious! We made these yesterday for Mother's Day and to serve 5 people we doubled the spices and used 5 plantains (they were fairly small). The only addition was some salt after they were browned, to bring out the sweetness. These were so good - even with all the other food we had, there was only about 1/2 plantain left. Thanks for sharing!
