Platanos Fritos con Cajeta – Fried Plantains with Goat Milk Caramel

Sure, it is easy to eat a jar of cateja using only a spoon. It is just as easy to put it on anything else you can think of.

Here in upstate New York, food does not generally come cheap, with the very strange exception of plantains which are frequently cheaper than regular bananas. As no one other than myself seems to be interested in them, I have an ever ready supply of almost perfectly ripe plantains ever ready.
