Fried sweet plantains

6 browned banana like food and a dish of honey with wooden stick on a metal tray on green mint green background. A sunflower and a bowl of nuts at the bottom edge.
As the plantains ripen, they turn yellow and black spots start to appear, just like the bananas you are familiar with. Ripe plantains have soft flesh with slight tangy taste just like the normal bananas without the banana flavour. They are delicious caramelised with butter and a little sprinkle of cinnamon.
