Directions

In a large saute pan over medium heat, add the sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, cloves, plantains and lemon juice. Stir the mixture until well combined and plantains begin to brown slightly. Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the liquid becomes thick and syrupy. Remove from the heat and serve.

    When I watched the show I didn't see 1 1/2 cups sugar added in the fry pan. Are you sure it's not 1 1/2 tablespoons?
