  • Green bananas and other unripe fruit

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm still missing my fruit but prefer to eat green bananas / sour fruit anyway - is that as bad (carb wise) as ripe fruit?

    Thanks

    The carbs are in the form of starch instead of sugar.

          I love cooked green bananas!

          I was just on my way out to the supermarket. Just put them on my grocery list.

            Or go for simple and fry them up in butter. So good.

                I prefer the flavor of green bananas to ripe bananas. They're more tart and firm.

                  I buy 'em green, peel 'em, break 'em in half and use them in my smoothies.

                    Yeah, I wouldn't say I eat them green, but I definitely eat them just *barely* out of greenness. Most people say they're best when start getting brown and soft and extra sweet. They think I'm crazy but I have always preferred them just slightly green still.

                      Agreed. I find them best with a slight amount of green on the ends. What others call ripe, I call gross.

                          A bananna with green tips, with a handful of almonds, makes a great snack!

                            I'm not sure if everyone is talking about the same thing. Many people call plantains green bananas. They are not the same fruit, although related. They are handled in different ways. Usually green bananas are cooked in stews or chowders or allowed to ripen. Plantains, when green, are used to make things like tostones (sort of a french fry replacement), mofungo (fried and mashed, then mixed with pork rinds). When yellow, they are usually fried with eggs for breakfast. I have known some people who let the plantain get black and eat it raw.
