Authentic vegetarian tacos become reality with canned jackfruit. This large tropical fruit is deceptively meat-like in texture, with a sweet, impressionable flavor. Pile it into tortillas to be topped with onion, cilantro, sour cream, and the upfront heat of a Cider Pepper Syrup.
Jackfruit is a large tropical fruit with bumpy, green skin and yellow-orange, fleshy pods that surround large, white edible seeds that can be boiled, baked or roasted. It can be consumed in its unripe and ripe state, and has a distinctively sweet and fruity aroma compared to that of pineapple, papaya and banana, with a sweet, bland flavor. Unripe jackfruit is often used in curries and stir fries, while ripe jackfruit is generally used in desserts. Since jackfruit does not keep long after harvesting, it is often preserved by canning. In the U.S., jackfruit is most readily available canned. Canned jackfruit can be found in Asian markets or online specialty stores.
