Miss Marjorie’s Steel Drum Plantains

by Anne Paddock

Most people know that a plantain is a member of the banana family but many Americans don’t know that plantains are starchier (like a potato) and low in sugar which makes them ideal to make into chips. However, there is an art to making great tasting plantain chips and Donna Moodie of Miss Marjorie Restaurant fame (Seattle, Washington) has mastered it.  Her plantain chips –  Miss Marjorie’s Steel Drum Plantains – are a tribute to her mom, Marjorie who used to make them in Jamaica using only the highest quality ingredients.

Popular in the Caribbean, Central America and Western Africa, plantain chips have only recently begun to grow in popularity in the United States as an alternative to potato or corn chips. Crunchy and slightly thicker than other types of chips, plantain chips have a savory yet very delicate sweet flavor that complements many dishes (but, are also delicious as is).

Naturally gluten-free, vegan, and delicious, Miss Marjorie’s Steel Drum Plantains are the perfectly spiced savory chip: crunchy with a hint of spiciness and slightly sweet. Pair with guacamole, salsa, soup, or enjoy right out of the beautifully packaged box.Miss_Marjorie's_Plantains
