JACKFRUIT

ABOUT

The jackfruit is oval in shape and has a thick, prickly skin. The fruit is very versatile. You will find round fruits in a type of ‘bag’ in the fibre-rich inside of the fruit. The flesh is light yellow and has a sweet taste. The seeds are edible too and taste a little like chestnuts. The unripe fruits are often used as meat or as a rice replacement as a result of their extraordinary texture.

PREPARATION

Jackfruit is often used in the Asian kitchen. The versatile fruit can be prepared and consumed unripe, ripe, uncooked or cooked. The seeds can be boiled and baked, or milled into flour.
