Jackfruit Preparation

*Make sure that you have "young jackfruit". The color should be white with a little hint of green. Usually found canned in the Asian markets.*

1 can of > young jackfruit <

Drain and rinse jackfruit thoroughly.

Cut off the hard ends of the jackfruit enough to where there is only a thin layer holding the fruit together.

Optional step:

Slice the Jackfruit in half to create 2 pizza shaped slices. Cutting the jackfruit thinner helps to ensure that the flavor is fully absorbed and cooks all the way through with a subtle crispiness. If you want the jackfruit to have more of a sweet and sour chicken look, then keep the pieces thick. However, understand that cooking time will be longer and the inside will be softer.

Add prepared jackfruit to your spelt flour mixture and ensure that all jackfruit is coated evenly.

Add some grapeseed oil to a non-stick pan and place heat on med-high.

Add Jackfruit mix to pan and brown each side.

Add ginger, red onion, and scallion to the pot and mix.

Add 1 cup of sweet and sour sauce recipe and mix.

Set on medium heat, cover pot and let cook for 5 minutes.

Add bell peppers and remaining sauce and mix thoroughly.

Cover and place on low heat for 15 minutes.

The result should look like the picture below.

We usually serve this dish with our oriental style quinoa.
