Steep graham crackers in milk and cream. Keep cold for about 4 hours. Heat cream and milk together in a pot. Once simmering, slowly pour some into egg yolk and sugar mix to temper. Then add egg mixture into cream mix and heat until thickened. Strain thru a chinois and cool over ice bath. Once cooled, freeze. Spin in pacojet approximately 1-2 hours before serving. Cut plantains in half, and then punch out circles using a ring cutter. Dust lightly with sugar and lightly caramelize with a torch. Reserve.
