Plantains are closely related to bananas, but they are larger, with very tough skin, and not as sweet—they are really more like a potato than a fruit. Because of their dense consistency, plantains are never eaten raw, but rather are steamed, fried, baked, or boiled. Tostones are plantains that are fried twice to give them a crunchiness that puts potato chips to shame. A special press is used to flatten the plantains into waffled chips, but the pointed end of a meat pounder or the bottom of a measuring cup works well, too although your tostones won't be perforated).
