JACKFRUITHUMMUS13When visiting the LA Wholesale Produce District, I make sure to try and visit Greenfield Imports to see if I can pick up a jackfruit. After opening and cleaning the fruit, a myriad of jackfruit seeds always remains. For a while, I was boiling them to enjoy with salads or as a snack, but a girl could only eat so much and they grew unenjoyable after the fourth or fifth jackfruit I had brought home. I started to compost, and even just dispose of the seeds, but felt guilty after doing so and knew that there needed to be another way to make use of these.

After brainstorming a few ideas with my auntie, this recipe was born and I had to share it with you all as soon as I could. 

jackfruithowtographicIn order to get jackfruit seeds, well, you’ll need a jackfruit. If you seek guidance on how to handle this fruit, I’ve got you 😉 I created a post specifically on How To Cut Jackfruit & Cook Jackfruit Seeds, so head there to get started.

Jackfruit23How To Cook Jackfruit Seeds

Printable recipe is available at the end of this post.

Rinse the jackfruit seeds, and be sure to get rid of any fruit scraps. Place the seeds to a pot with about 1″ of water over them seeds. Bring the water to a boil over medium heat, then lower to a simmer and cover. Allow the jackfruit seeds cook for 30 minutes or until soft (similar to a baked or steamed potato).

Drain and lay the seeds out in a flat layer to dry. Once dry, you want to remove the skin. You only need to peel away the outer white skin. The thin inner brown skin is edible. Some of the seeds will have naturally opened, but others may take some effort to peel. Be careful, the skin can be sharp.

How To Roast Garlic Cloves

Roasting garlic alters its flavor, making it nutty, slightly sweet, and soft as opposed to strong and spicy. There are two different ways to roast garlic, and you can use either of them here, but I chose the quicker route. The traditional way (which I did not use) requires you to take an entire head of garlic, cut off the top, cover it in foil and roast it in an oven for an extended period of time. The shortcut way, which I used, simply places unpeeled garlic cloves on a baking sheet and into an oven for about half of the time.

While the seeds boil, preheat oven to 350 F. Place the garlic onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes, tossing halfway through.
