Still, if you see it at your local supermarket, there’s no reason not to try jackfruit out. “Jackfruit is good for anyone who likes to experiment with new cooking techniques. It’s also good for vegans who like the taste and texture of meat,” says Rizzo.
In addition to using it in a sandwich, you can also throw soft jackfruit into a taco for a #TacoTuesday, or lather it with BBQ sauce to make a juicy hamburger, says Rizzo. If you are cooking it and using it in a sandwich, Rizzo suggests cutting it into cubes and boiling it for about 45 minutes until it becomes stringy.
