    Is there a recipe for the dish pictured at the top of the page? Looks like baked plantain stuffed with mozzarella and guava paste. (I think I just answered my own question…)

    I recently spent time in South America and was introduced to the plantain – I’m hooked! I fond your site (clean look and such helpful recipes!) I want to try some of these recipes, but first, how do I know that a plantain has reached “ripeness.” Thanks for sharing your expertise!
