So you know we speak highly of breadfruit here right?
Yes, I have several articles about breadfruit, including one speaking to the history of breadfruit in Jamaica and even our own breadfruit pudding! Oh yes! Not only is breadfruit highly nutritious (packed with carbohydrates, a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, dietary fibre, antioxidants, iron, magnesium, omega 3, omega 6, phosphorus, and potassium), making it extremely versatile.
In my opinion, a breadfruit tree is one of the must-have all backyards, as long as you have the space to accommodate it.
The breadfruit menu items continues to expand, as in addition to the traditional boiled breadfruit, baked breadfruit and roasted breadfruit, there is now:
Breadfruit chips Breadfruit flour Breadfruit punch Breadfruit salad Breadfruit pudding Breadfruit bread Breadfruit balls Breadfruit cake Breadfruit drink Breadfruit fritters Breadfruit jam Breadfruit pasta Breadfruit porrige Breadfruit pie Breadfruit smoothie, and even, Breadfruit tea! ( breadfruit leaf tea) And the list continues...
It is also said be used in the manufacturing of latex, insect repellent and fabric, that's the power of the breadfruit!
Today, I am going to share a recipe for one of the lesser known uses of this amazing breadfruit with you. It's fried breadfruit chips, Jamaican style!
No, not the roast THEN fry as you probably know it, it's
fried green breadfruit! And yes, I made a simple video of fried breadfruit today, here is it below.
