We love this funky fruit and the way it works perfectly as a replacement for shredded meat. I just had to find some to make jackfruit recipes at home. Young, unripened jackfruit is used in recipes to replace shredded chicken, beef and pork. I finally found some canned at the Asian grocery and used it to make this super quick and easy dish.
