So, what is jackfruit?

Jackfruit is a tropical fruit that has recently gained popularity as a vegan meat alternative due to its meat-like texture and ability to absorb flavors. It is the largest tree-borne fruit and can weigh up to 100 pounds! The fruit is covered in a spiky green skin and inside, it has edible yellow flesh and large seeds that can also be eaten when cooked. Jackfruit is a good source of fiber and contains various nutrients such as vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. Its versatility in cooking makes it a unique ingredient, as it can be used in savory or sweet dishes, including curries, tacos, burgers, and even desserts.
