Food Friday: Jackfruit

Labels: , ,

Fresh jackfruit grown in Florida, in portions or the whole fruit, is now available in Asian grocery stores in my area. They are as good as the ones from Asia but the color is not as deep yellow maybe because the fruits are picked a little early.

Jackfruit is a favorite of mine. I cook them in sugar syrup then add the sweet langka in halo-halo, ice cream, candies, sapin-sapin, guinatan, and of course in saba banana turon which I'll make this weekend. I also boil the seeds with a little sea salt until they are very soft. They're so good for snacking.

guinatan halo-halo

Growing up surrounded by langka trees, the fruit has become my favorite...I love it in ginataan and turon or plain lang na fruit, or remember yung may gata na gulay na langka? But now I can't eat it na because when I do my throat itches :( allergic na.

your halo halo foto looks heavenly!
