Has anyone ever eaten green bananas?


I am aware that some cultures eat them. If you have a recipe, please share it. And no, I am not talking about plantains.

    The cooking oil on the hands is a great idea to reduce the possibility of latex stains on your hands. We have a green plantain here in Costa Rica that is called a cuadrato (guineo) that is boiled and served in soups.

    Good suggestions drmark. I will have to try some of these ideas. I experiment with tropical foods. Drying them could lead to some interesting possibilities.

    So, you end up with fried banana patties?

    I didn't know Bananas Foster used green bananas, but I have never had this dessert.

    Actually, green bananas have a latex-like sap, perhaps that is what you are allergic to. The sap is converted to sugar when it ripens.

    shivanchirakkal- I like the idea of boiling and then frying the banana pieces in oil with chili powder. Chili powder is one of my favorite spices. Thanks!
