What is teriyaki pulled jackfruit? Let’s start with what IS Jackfruit? Jackfruit is actually from the same species as the fig family and is the largest tree borne fruit growing sometimes as large as 80 pounds in weight. It is grown throughout the tropical regions of the world and can be eaten in various stages of its maturity; unripe used in savoury dishes and ripe used in sweet dishes. Here in Canada, it is usually found canned in Asian grocery stores however recently SPUD has started carrying a packaged version, which comes either BBQ or Thai curry flavoured, or original unflavoured. Today, I am sharing a recipe for Teriyaki pulled jackfruit that originally used the canned version, updated for the fresh packaged version.
