this is a prototype, and to be given to one of our friends at church. it is used to make a variant of tostones, that are shaped like a cup, the other variation is outright flat. to make them, take an average plantain, deep fry it a bit, then take it to the tostonero, and smash it flat, then finish frying it. with the other one, it is put into a press, and it makes a sort of plantain cup, which is then filled, and cooked. i'm using some odd cuts of cherry for this one. the finish will be good old mineral oil.
