Benefits of Jackfruits
Jackfruit flesh can be boiled and salted and served like a vegetable. It can be eaten before the fruit is fully ripe or when it is ripened. When not quite ripe, the jackfruit flesh will produce a gummy substance. Jackfruit has been used in both savory and sweet dishes. It can be dried or fried to produce something similar to potato chips, and when cooked unripened, it can substitute for plantain. Boiled jackfruit and milk also make a popular sweet custard dish that tastes like an orange. Sweet jackfruit dishes include chutneys, jams, jellies, fruit smoothies and ice creams.
