Ok what is jackfruit?

The answer is already in the name: jackfruit is a fruit that is actually native to the tropics and belongs to the mulberry family. The jackfruit tree is widespread in the tropical regions of the world. The large fruit is called jackfruit, jackfruit or jack tree fruit in this country. In Brazil it is called „Jaca“ in Portuguese or „Nangka“ in Malay.

In fact, what makes this fruit so special is its pulp, which is both starchy and fibrous. While the taste of ripe fruit is naturally sweet, young fruit tends to be flavorless and have a perfect meaty texture. With their mild taste, young jackfruit are better able to absorb other flavors and are often compared to poultry or pork because of their meat-like texture. Now, when we cook them with our BBQ sauce, your guests probably won’t guess at first that this is fruit. Let’s stun the skeptics!

We’ve found that the easiest way to use jackfruit is to buy it packaged. You can get them canned, vacuum packed and frozen. It lasts forever this way and is much easier to come by than fresh.

Side dish rosemary potato wedges

These potato wedges are crispy and crunchy with a soft interior. Homemade potato wedges are the perfect solution when you have a craving for french fries. You are free to peel them beforehand or to put them straight into the tube with the peel.

I just seasoned the wedges with salt, pepper and fresh rosemary, which is more than enough. I used heart-healthy olive oil for baking so I didn’t have to fry them in rapeseed oil. They are the healthier fries. You can also season the potato wedges with garlic powder or onion powder, hot paprika powder and other herbs.
