I said a few days ago that we would talk about tostones at a later date. Today is the later date. Tostones are exactly what the title says, twice-fried plantains. As you probably know, a plantain looks like a green banana, but is very different. They can be cooked in various ways, but this my favorite. They can served as an appetizer, or as a side dish. Either way, just like potato chips, you can't eat just one. : )
Before we start, here is today's music to cook by. I just saw this guy on "Woodsongs" on PBS a few days ago. His name is George Winston, and as you will hear, he was heavily influenced by Vince Guaraldi.1 plantain

Looks easy, right? After peeling the plantain, you need to chop it into 5 or 6 pieces.
