"Wait, why can't I get my maduros to be consistently sugary sweet?"
Sun Dec-21-14 10:21 AM by deejboram

  

          

Like, sometimes they be ON POINT
all that soft buttery sugary goodness
And other times they come out dry, hard and more like tostones.

Tips?

Man, let me finish getting ready for church.

In response to Reply # 7


  

          

im sayin
i know what very ripe bananas/plantains look like
im saying even if i start with very ripe ones my shit still come out a lil dry like tostones
it be pissing me off too because it fucks up my breakfast
i like to (be looking FORWARD TO) a nice set of buttery scrambled eggs and some nice sugary golden platanos and salty hickory smoked tocino
but the platanos be the big sugary let down
bacon be salty and on point as it needs to be

im asking here because i saw the goya joints in the freezer section last week and copped
threw them in a cast iron skillet in a lil butter and they warmed right up PERFECTLY
but i had a bit of guilt as i paid WAAAY too much for something as simple as platanos
that's like me buying a pound of plain white rice from the Whole Foods hot food bar.

i think like nbdisbss said maybe it is the non-NYC platanos i'm using creates this problem

I'm going to buy some today and let them ripen up and try again

i feel like such a failure
like all them okp who can't boil rice
who knew something so simple could take such science?

have you never heard of spanglish?
habla espanol, mami?
i'm sure in you have heard people use english to begin a sentence an spanish to end a sentence, have you not?

i have also used tocino and bacon interchangebly here
i recall a post where you wrote 100 words in english but then you used tijeras or cuchilla and you were called out by others for doing so

did you know a lot of ppl go to the super bowl and nba playoffs and have zero intentions on even watching the game

listen you barely understand what you are doing

i get it
you're kinda dumb
and you're a troll


but dont get it twisted
asking about recipes is one thing
but you post badly
about cultures and your sexcations
and in general you are a troll
you arent a serious person

but frankly i see you regularly trying to legitimize yourself regarding other cultures
i'm telling you its not working

this isnt about my pride in my heritage(s)
this is about you fronting regularly
about shit you dont know and using it for some type of cultural cred
on these boards

on the one hand i'm glad you are seeking some sort of direction
but you are trying to do it from a false place of expertise
you can quit that
nobody is buying it
just tell folks you dont know how to make maduros

But what kind of culture do I talk about on these boards?
Hbcu life?
I lived it.

Strip club life?
I'm living it.

Life in the ghetto?
I lived it.

Life at ivy league schools?
Been there done that.

Traveling the world partying and having sex with random women?
Did that too.

If you use oil at all, it becomes that flat potato starch taste.

But I put cinnamon and nutmeg with the butter, which is clearly a cheat but who cares?

In response to Reply # 11


  

          

they are expensive, usually i get them on sale $2 for 4 oz. but i think the regular price is 3.50 or 4 bucks.

you can make it at home with quality butter and real maple syrup for less.

there is this stuff called buffalo butter (from bufala, italy) that is delicious, though more for savory stuff than sweet.

I don't think it was actual butter cause it evaporated in no time and I had to back it up with actual cinnamon and more butter. But it got the ball rollin.

I hated bananas my whole life, but these right here? Earthstopping.

And the exact banana variety is inconsistent...

Will the same batch of bananas yield different results?

I've NEVER made a bad batch of maduros in nyc
NEVER
caribbean neither
but everywhere else results be spotty
i buy the plantains from all types of stores too from WalMart up to Central Market (texas local version of Whole Foods)

but you're right some of these platains be lookin just a lil different from the nyc ones

i usually buy no more than two plantains at a time so i can't really call them "batches" but results are consistent if i bought a pair of them

Less sugary varieties bc they don't expect them to turn over as quick or just buying whatever they can get from whatever country.

between the ones i've had in the dominican republic vs. here in nyc so i'm sure it probably depends on how they actually ripen wherever you are located.
