Jackfruit is a large green fruit native to Southeast Asia and has become a pretty popular meat alternative in recent years because it looks just like pulled pork or chicken when cooked!

Jackfruit is a little sweet, but it easily takes on the flavor of anything you cook it with, even smoky vegan barbecue sauce. It's also a good source of protein, potassium, calcium, and iron.
If you can't find it at your supermarket around the corner, go to an Asian supermarket, where you should always find a cheap can. And here are the perfect recipes for it:
