 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      ripe          plantains
    1      tablespoon    butter
    1      tablespoon    sugar
 
 
 Peel the plantains and slice them into 1/2-inch rounds. Heat the 
 butter to
 foaming in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the plantain slices 
 to the
 butter and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, or until they are lightly browned 
 and
 slightly caramelized. Sprinkle the plantain slices with the sugar, 
 allow
 the sugar to caramelize slightly, then remove the plantains from the
 skillet. Serve warm.
 
 These plantain slices are also particularly good when served over 
 vanilla
 ice cream, topped with the caramelized butter from the pan.
 
 Yield: 6 to 8 serving
