Cooking with Jackfruit

Cooking with Jackfruit

If you are not too fond of complex dishes, then just rinse the young fruit (to remove the salt) and marinate it to taste — with a barbecue sauce, butter or vinegar for 30 minutes and fry. You can make a jackfruit on the grill or make a real shish kebab with your favorite seasonings. Another option: chop or cut the fruits and cook with them paste.

All recipes with which we introduce you, use young immature fruits. If you have a canned jackfruit, it should be properly dried. To remove excess salt, the pulp is pre-washed. Frozen jackfruit must be thawed before use.
