Plantains, Peeling

Yellow-brown, brown, and black plantains can be peeled as you would a banana, but it is much more difficult to peel a green or yellow plantain.

To peel, with a paring knife, slice off the ends. Slit the skin lengthwise and slide your thumbnail under the slit to pry off the skin.
