  • 1 tb Honey

Cook until tip of sharp knife will pierce skin easily, about 7-9 minutes. Transfer to colander to drain and let cool briefly. Peel plantains and place into blender. Add margarine, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg. Puree coarsely, not completely smooth. Divide among 4 serving dishes, top with sour cream and sprinkle with more fresh ground nutmeg if desired.
This recipe can be doubled.
