Need Yellow Plantains
Whole Foods La Jolla only have green ones. Any suggestions?
Put them on the counter (in a paper bag with a regular banana or an apple if you're in a hurry).
Leave 'em for a few days - they'll be yellow.
Leave 'em for a few more days and they'll be beginning to turn brown...then they're sweet enough to just fry and enjoy.
Any Mexican grocery would have them...if you're near Clairemont, try La Tiendita near the corner of Clairemont Mesa Blvd and Clairemont Dr.
Sorry I took so long to reply. I have not been online in a few days. I ended dropping by whole foods and they actually had yellow ones. I boiled them in their skin and then put their flesh in a food processor. I stuffed them with sausage, pine nuts and raisins. Then deep fried them. Fantastic!
