In Haiti we call this "Lam" or "Lam Veritable" we eat it many ways, we fry it like a fried plantain, mash it up like mashed potatoes we call it "Tomtom or Fufu" when mashed. My personal favorite of eating is making it into a shake. You boil the fruit with some cinnamon sticks, when soft put in a blender, add a banana, vanilla extract, carnation milk, sugar, ice and blend until thick and juicy!
