My adventure with jackfruit started a few years ago in Jamaica. I ate it but didn’t pay too much attention to it.
A year ago, I found a sliced jackfruit in one of the local stores in Chicago and I decided to experiment with it. So I brought home this warm yellow slice of jackfruit and left it in my refrigerator for about a week. I found a good curry jackfruit recipe. When I was pealing it, it was pretty sticky so I was using gloves. Overal experience was not that pleasant and my curry jackfruit didn’t taste well. It was a bit too sweet for me. I was not impressed.
I changed my mind and opinion about jackfruit when I tried it as the vegan version of pulled pork at the Summer Vegan Fest. It was delicious. I was ready to experiment more to reconstruct this wonderful recipe.
