Tips
  • Store at room temperature until ripe, then refrigerate.
  • To freeze plantains: (1) Peel and mash; (2) Add one tablespoon of lemon juice or 1/2 teaspoon ascorbic acid for each cup of mashed plantain to prevent browning; (3) Place in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
