My Dad bought a jackfruit yesterday, and when I went over tonight he suggested I try and cook it.
Never again! They are horrid! Thier insides are full of latex, and if you don't cover your hands in oil when you cut them up, your hands stick together! Ugh, ugh, ugh. I'm very adventurous in my eating and trying new things.. but jackfruit is going on my (very short) never again list. Ugh! The taste after being cooked was kind of slightly bearable, but they were just so unappealing after the whole latex thing.
For those who don't know what jackfruit is, they are really large breadfruit, and they grow in the South Pacific. Shipwrecked sailors eat them in bad novels. You'd have to be shipwrecked to eat one! They look like giant, football sized green rambutans, and when you cut them up, the insides look a bit like shredded chicken covered in oleander sap.
Anyone else tried this culinary delight? I've still got half of one in the fridge if you want to try......
