Have you ever tried Jackfruit?
I recently discovered a new Asian/Indian market in town where I found bitter melon for an 89-year-old friend who is originally from Trinidad. I didn't recognize about half the items in the store, not being into those styles of cooking in more than a very basic way, so it was like being in a strange new world!
One of the mysteries was Jackfruit, about as large as a regular sized watermelon, and available both fresh and canned. Anyone ever try it? They are so large that I can't imagine buying one without sharing with someone.
