RE: Birds and the Musa paradísiaca
I never knew that birds too enjoy plantains and bananas, oh well, it seems like its not just humans that know and enjoy these good stuff! Lol. I love Bananas and plantains as well, I prefer my plantains fried though, it tastes much better that way (or maybe I haven't tried much of the cooked variety).
I think I have come across some bananas that still look green even after they are ripe, maybe you haven't come across that variety yet?
I am really interested in knowing that dish you make with the leaves, I have never heard of it. How does it taste like?
