The Versatile Breadfruit - Creative Monday Linky


   Have you ever heard of the breadfruit?  It can be found in many tropical countries. It is an ovoid or round fruit with a thin green skin and is usually about 15 – 20 cm long and about 20 cm in diameter. Breadfruit can be cooked in a variety of ways - boiled, roasted, baked, fried etc. My family and I mainly have it roasted or fried. When it is mature it can be roasted for about 1 hour on the stove top.  Throughout this time it has to be turned several times so that all sides are cooked. It should be soft when cooked. A skewer or knife can be used to test it. The skin is usually peeled off. It is then cut in half, the centre removed and the rest cut in slices. It can be then eaten as is or fried.

I've never had it, but it sure looks good. I love all the things you have that we don't have. A history lesson if you will.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

Diane said...

I have never tried it. What does it taste like? Have a great week Judy :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot Sandee! I like to share some of the things we have here in Jamaica. Do enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Let me see Diane, some would say there is a similarity to potato and bread.

Tammy said...

I would like to try breadfruit. It is always fun eating new foods. I will never understand when people are afraid to taste something new. That is one of the best parts of life.

Thanks for hosting!

Hello Judy! I've only seen breadfruit once in our local grocery store, but had no idea what to do with it. Could it be mashed with a little cream and butter as you would with potatoes and served in the same way? Say... as a starch to accompany meats, for instance? Thanks for co-hosting the party today. Hope your week ahead is a wonderful one! ~Mary

Hi Mary,
Thanks for your comments. When it is roasted some persons enjoy it with lumps of butter. It can also be eaten with different types of meat. I have never crushed it but there are several ways that it can be prepared. Have yourself a wonderful week.
