Last week I bought 4 very green bananas in the hopes that they would ripen while we were eating the ripe ones we had. Well they never did ripen and I didn't want to throw them out or go all the way to the store just to return such a small inexpensive item. So....I decided since they were hard like plantain I'd fry them up. Not being a fan of fried foods I would never do this unless I was at a loss...which i was. I cut them in small pieces and fried them in some light vegetable oil. I tasted one, it was very bland. I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar on them and that tasted better. My DH, who doesn't like sweet desserts thought they were good. So now I know what to do with my green bananas that won't ripen up!
