How to easily peel green plantains

Green plantains have a tough outer skin and don’t peel nearly as easy as ripe plantains or bananas. Here’s how to do it:

  • cut off both ends of the plantain
  • score it lengthwise in at lease three different places and peel
  • if you are still having a tough time peeling them, soak the scored plantains in a pot of very hot water for 7-10 minutes and try again
