Plantains to cook

They are almost always available at Whole Foods and I do see them at the Ralphs in my neighborhood (Hollywood). Jons (with the font that looks a little too much like Vons') will usually have a good range of ripeness available. They take forever to ripen and are not at all good if you try to cook them when they are green. Look for the ones that have blackish spots on them.
