You may never think to pair plantain with Persimmon. When you think of plantain, the first thing that comes to most people’s minds is tostones. Check out my Tostones Cups Stuffed With Ground Turkey Recipe in my previous blog. 

Plantain porridge is very popular in the Caribbean and can be prepared with different flavor profiles. Many have added oatmeal, cornmeal, and peanuts to the starchy fruit to create a delicious breakfast hot cereal.

Plantain porridge as well as many other kinds of porridge is very economical and was a frequent part of my daily meal plan growing up. Many will agree that the “pot bottom” or the “bun Bun” as most people call it, is the tastiest part of the porridge. 

The bun bun is the remains of the porridge that became caramelized and caked onto bottom surface of the pot during the cooking process. I often take a spoon and scrape the bun bun porridge from the pot’s surface; it was an enjoyable treat.

 I am a big fan of persimmons as you can tell from a number of persimmon blog posts. They are versatile and can be used in a number of sweet and savory. 

Persimmon and Plantain create a delicious marriage that give birth to the plantain persimmon porridge. Their unique flavor and texture will leave you wanting more. Scroll down to see the recipe.
