Deep Fried Canndied Plantains
From: Savannah - Staten Island, New York

Needed: big pot, lots of corn, palm or coconut oil, as many browned plantains as you want to make and a box of brown sugar...

*note - plantains shouldn't be squishy/too soft to slice proplerly... as they don't slice well/fry well...

  • Big bottle of corn oil, palm oil or coconut oil
  • As many browned plantains as you want to make
  • A box of brown sugar (so you can use as much as you want)

1) slice browned plantains chip style while heating a pot of corn oil to bubbling point... (or palm or coconut oil)...

2) when oil is to bubbling point pour in as much brown sugar as you want and stir well...

3) then add the plantains and deep fry until they're as deep fried as you want them...

*note - the brown sugar will coat each and every plantain fully and when cooling will become "candied plantains"...

They are really good - I've made them before for get togethers...
