Gastronomy of Canton Chone

Banana tortillas from Chone.

It is a type of gastronomy from Manabi and Chonera that has perhaps experienced a creativity of the variation of Creole food with respect to plantain or Verde as a nutritional element based on the diet of Ecuadorians. The Banana cake should be thick, not too watered down and should be the soft dough because it has to absorb the elements that will be applied to the grated banana

The Banana or Green Bowls

There are 2 kinds of Balls: Banana Ball cooked in water and the Banana Ball roasted in the oven. Las Bollas or Bolones are a kind of banana dough that has simple ingredients in its preparation and have a specific flavor since it is almost the same to prepare the banana sewn or roasted; only that this last type of preparation is more complicated and of long time, while the first one is faster.

Ripe or Banana with Salprieta

The Salprieta is a type of striped peanuts when it has already been roasted in the oven at high temperatures in a process mostly known by montubios, since in Chone it can be purchased directly from stores and supermarkets. The peanut is scratched or crushed in a very simple way with a mallet or a mill and it is poured salt at its point and taste, then it is refined by another process of crushing and merging with achiote; Once this procedure is done, it is mixed with chopped cilantro leaves; then the peanut betrays a very light flavor, soft and sometimes greasy.
