What a brilliant solution to having some mature jackfruit (often packed in syrup).

Delicious and easy! I ended up using half green and half mature. The green is much healthier: fewer calories and sugar, etc. Tasted fine, and the BBQ sauce I used was a bit spicy for the family so the sweetness helped to cut that a bit, but next time I'll use only green.

Bought some to try in a bbq sauce recipe. I have both green and mature so I’m hoping that I can throw in some mature also once the dish is close to done/ cooked - anyone had luck with this?

It tastes like chicken with the right spices, and pork with different spices! Just take out the seeds, shred with forks and cook like shredded chicken or pork. I like Annie's Organic Barbecue sauce because it's not too sweet and definitely vegan (watch out for anchovies or fish sauce in other bottled sauces).

I haven't tried it for chicken salad or tuna salad yet. Christian, if you lived closer I'd make it for you! emoticon

Here's a simpler version for baked beans - no lavender, either:

Oh - you are brilliant! Boston baked beans would be an excellent accompaniment to barbecue jackfruit.

I've been meaning to make my own. I love the Bush's vegetarian baked beans, but the sugar content is a little high (and I bet homemade tastes better anyway!).

Here's a recipe. Sounds good. Not quite certain about the lavender, though.

Yeah, it sounds like it should be regarded as a vegetable in terms of nutrition and meat in terms of texture. I would probably add some beans to something else in the meal, if it were my main meal of the day. I'm getting curious...

I hear you about the low protein. Analog meat (and OMG cheese) can be frustrating that way, especially for those of us (like me, a diabetic) who have to be more careful about protein per meal, not just overall intake.

A jackfruit turkey pot pie could be enhanced with peas and even some tofu chunks. I've done protein bread and avocado slices for jackfruit barbecue "pork." Other ideas, anyone?

I saw that Trader Joe's had it canned for a couple of bucks. Haven't tried it yet. I had it in a pot pie restaurant a couple of years ago, and liked it, but it has a low protein content, so don't anticipate using it as a meat substitute. But I can see working it into the rotation just for texture and variety.

I am all over jackfruit "pulled pork." I don't even like that kind of thing (or didn't, when I ate meat).

It's sooo good!

I only use canned, green jackfruit either pickled in brine or just water (rinse well if you get the kind in brine). My Asian store always carries it.

Now, I haven't tried it, mind - but I just saw this holiday recipe for jackfruit "turkey and gravy." Link below. If you try it, please share your results!

It's hard to handle fresh because of the sticky latex.
If you like it though it tends to be pretty cheap where it is grown as the fruits are enormous, up to basketball size.
If you do a search for gudeg you'll find a very traditional Indonesian recipe for jackfruit. No need to make it as sweet as they do in my opinion, that's just Javanese taste for you; even the savoury dishes are sweet.
I like it, goes well stir fried, slow cooked, etc. The seeds are also tasty, can be boiled or roasted. Bangladeshis are crazy for them, I used to see them buying huge bags of just seeds at my local market when I lived in a jackfruit area.

I live in south Florida and haven’t seen it, but will be looking.

I bought some preseasoned prepackaged Jackfruit yesterday. It was a huge convenience cheat and not the direction I am going but I did like the mouthfeel.

You can buy it unseasoned and minimally processed online in bulk. It grows well in South Florida so I think I can get it up near me fresh when in season. Does anyone use it?
