Jackfruit: An Everyday Food in South East Asia

Fresh Whole Jackfruit 

Canned jackfruit (mixed with other fruits) is some time found in the US grocery such as Walmart. But import caned with all jackfruit (no mixed) and the fresh, especially whole jackfruit could be found in Asian groceries only. We can buy per-pound or sliced as well. 

Back home to South East Asian, jackfruit is everywhere foods, we can get free from neighborhoods. The whole fruits are mainly 6 pounds weight, but some could reach to 40 pounds. Since it is imported, jackfruits are luxury in the USA, the price depend on the quality. The average price around US$ 5 per-pound, but could be US$ 17.10 per-pound, so expensive.

Ripe jackfruits without seeds. 

For many American fellows, they see jackfruit like gigantic spiny kiwi. When they try to open, surprisingly the flesh is sticky, then peeling the flesh will be messy. Membranes cover the flesh and seed inside the flesh must be taken away. 

Ripe jackfruits could be eaten directly, the color is yellow and sweet tasted. The sweetened comparatively to mango or pineapple. The green jackfruit (unripe) could be used for cooking or salads, like vegetables. 

Some people make jam and syrup from jackfruits. We often eat seeds as well by boiling in water or roasting with small fires for dishes. 

Jackfruit supplies antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and fibers. Hence the fruit is good for health.
