Start Your Own Plantain Chips Business

How to start a plantain chips business? Today I’m going to share a recipe for the perfect ceviche scooper – the plantain chip.
Plantains are magical fruits. I’m sure you’ve seen them in the grocery store. They are the banana’s slightly larger, starchier, less sweet cousin. If you like salty, crunchy, chip-like snacks, you’ll love these.

They are really easy to make, pack well for on-the-go, and serve as great scoopers for salsa. When it comes to choosing a plantain, there are two options: more ripe or less ripe. The more ripe plantains are {you guessed it} more yellow. The less ripe plantains are {you guessed again!} more green. They may have some bruising, but don’t be discouraged. Unlike a banana, the skin on a plantain is typically thick enough to protect the flesh within.
The green plantains are easy to slice thinly and are less sweet. The yellow plantains can be a little sticky but make sweeter chips. The choice is yours, though I recommend green. Experiment and have fun!
First, set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the ends off and then score the length of the plantain with about three evenly spaced cuts. Don’t cut too far into the flesh, you just want to cut through the skin.
The cuts you just made help you peel the plantain.Slice the plantain on a diagonal as thinly as you can consistently manage.
Toss the plantain slices with 1-1.5 teaspoon melted coconut oil, lay out on the baking sheet, and sprinkle with the salt.

If you’re an inconsistent slicer like me, some of the chips will be finished after 20 minutes in the oven and the rest will be finished after about 25. Leave in longer or shorter depending on how your oven heats and feel free to remove the more well-done chips as they start to brown.When all the chips are to your liking, remove from the oven and enjoy!
Although you can store them in a Ziploc bag for up to 5-7 days, they will start to lose their crisp after a day or so.
When you get them nice and crispy, they’re hard to put down! This is the recipe for you to start your own business for making plantain chips. What are you waiting for? Get to start now!
