Yellow plantains are often mashed, grilled over coals and baked due to their stage of maturity. They are the choice plantain for caramelizing, often as a sweet addition to savory dishes, especially in Caribbean cuisines, specifically Cuban. Yellow plantains are complimented by ingredients such as coconut, vanilla, cream, melting cheeses, chiles, citrus, chicken, pork, black beans, pineapple, mango, shrimp, tofu and herbs such as cilantro and mint.

Plantains are considered a super food. They have more than twenty times the amount of vitamin A, about three times the vitamin C, double the magnesium, and almost twice the potassium as the common banana.

If peel is yellow or black it is mature and at peak ripeness. So many true notes of banana including vanilla waft off of these organically grown plantains.

Thorpe's Organic Family Farm

The Thorpe family, whose main farm is in East Aurora, purchased a 15-acre organic citrus grove in Lake Wales, Florida.

"Thorpe's Organic Family Farm is a 
certified organic, biodiverse farm located outside of East Aurora, NY, near the city of Buffalo. Our farm is owned and managed by us- Mike and Gayle Thorpe, along with our six children- Jeremiah, Abraham, Elijah, Abigail, Naomi, and Hannah. The grandchildren (Levi, Janie, Iyla, Ivy, Noah, William, and Kyleigh) help out as well. We are blessed with a faithful farm staff/extended family too, and couldn't accomplish what we do without them!"

"We focus on growing certified organic produce using sustainable farming methods in order to improve the soil life of our land, and the health of the community around us. We do not use any chemical herbicides, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, or otherwise dangerous chemicals. Instead, we employ time-tested farming methods such as organic fertilizers, beneficial insects, cover crops, frequent crop rotation, and organic rock powders and minerals to improve soil life and nutrients. "

"And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat." Genesis 1:29
