I have two but not really sure what to do with them - how ripe do they need to be? Does the skin need to be black?

ineed - erm, I think so? It's that gritty pale-yellow stuff. It's great to roll on chicken thighs too, btw.

God, I'm starving now!

Yes it is I had to check. LRD you can porridge out of it with condensed milk water vanilla cinnamon and nutmeg. It's luffly really really luffly.

They're heavier than doughnuts though. Really leaden in the stomach.

You can eat green plantains or make a porridge from them. Google tostones or patacones the south American way of frying green plantains, lovely with salt.
