While visiting Panama, we came across this dish. I later found out that not only do we make this Puerto Rico, but also Cuba and most of Central America.
This sweet side dish adds a nice contrast to other traditional Latin dishes.
3 very ripe plantains ( skin covered in black spots), peeled, sliced in about one inch pieces
1 cup brown sugar
pinch of salt
3 cinnamon sticks
2 oz dark rum
2 tablepoons of unsalted butter
about 2 cups water to cover plantains
Place plantains in a medium sauce pan, add the cinnamon, rum, sugar, butter, salt and cover plantains with water. Bring to a soft boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to make sure the sugar dissolves. This will take about an hour or until the sugar caramelizes.
Plantain goodness! Que Rico!
Beautifully presented. I’d be interested in what you served it with.
Norma, que ricos plátanos y que deliciosa receta. ¡Enhorabuena!
Looks so inviting sitting there on that plate!
Yummmm. I love plantains. We never have them sweet in Nigeria but I’d love to try it
When you visit OZ
I have never had that before. Wow!
