In the Facebook group What Sha Cooking I posted my banana chips snack today.
I love eating banana chips once in a while. Growing up it use to be a nice small bag of a snack my mom bought us. I have came across so many banana chips that are thick and sugary when Jamaica banana chips are thin and salted.
Last year I came across a small bag of banana chips here at the African store 20 minutes in walking distant away, but for a small bag I don’t see me buying it for 1E each time I have the crave or missing home. Therefore I made my own batch today.
Slice Plantain into very thin slices.Place the slices in a bowl and pour about 2 TBS of olive oil and mix well. Separate slice from each other and lay ontop of baking paper. Sprinkle with salt. Place in oven on the very highest temp middle rack for 7 minutes and remove.
Once remove I have learn not to just let them sit. Grab the baking paper and fold up both ends as if your enclosing the chips. Shake, shake, and shake. This will help loosen up the chips that was stick together and also air both side. When chips are left just sitting on the rack the bottoms tend to be soft instead of crispy.
