Why is everyone eating jackfruit?
The large spiky fruit that is surprisingly meaty
Don't let the size of this giant southeast Asian fruit scare you, as they range from 15 to 50 lbs and have a thick, green rind that can be tough to crack. Jackfruit often comes prepped in a can or packaged in the refrigerator section.
The flavor of jackfruit changes with its time off the vine. When freshly picked, it's perfect for savory dishes. Many compare the texture to pulled pork, and when slathered in barbecue sauce it tastes like it too. After a jackfruit is fully ripened, it turns sweet and sticky, making it better for desserts or smoothies.
Jackfruit is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, vitamin B6, and fiber, making it a nutritious alternative to meat (with a lot less fat), according to Eat Well.
Are you brave enough to try a jackfruit-based meal? It may just become your new vegetarian obsession.
