QuickTip :: Peeling Plantains

Recently I have been looking for unique snacks for my husband and alternatives to potato chips (something he loves). On my first plantain chip attempt I found the hardest part to peel them in their unripened state. My hands were a mess and sore from trying to rip the skin, and often I cut more of the plantain off than the peel.

Last night I took revenge on the plantain and found a pretty neat way to successfully and quickly peel them. Here is how:

  1. chop the plantain into smaller chunks.
  2. cut down one side of the peel as close to the edge of fruit and peel as possible
  3. easily pull the rest of the peel wrap off.

    (compared to....)
Good Luck!
