Black Bananas/Bananas Maduras

Lauren | May 24, 2004 11:20 AM

Does anyone know anything about black bananas—"bananas maduras," as they're known in Spanish? I saw them for sale in a bodega, and, while they looked positively rotten to me, I'm wondering what they're used for in Latino cuisine and if they're a delicacy. Basically any information on the subject I'd be interested to hear. Thanks.
