What Is Jackfruit?
Jackfruit is the latest vegan food craze, thanks to it's role as an alternative to meat. You'll find tons of recipes for pulled "pork" jackfruit or a variety of jackfruit tacos, but this versatile fruit can disguise itself in so many ways. It tastes relatively plain when raw, so jackfruit (which has a kind of intimidating thick, nubby green skin) lends itself to whatever flavors you throw at it. Find it at special grocery stores, or in the canned fruit section of many supermarkets. Vegan or not, you're going to love what jackfruit can do in your kitchen.
