Let's talk about these yummy jackfruit sliders. Jackfruit can be a scary fruit since it's the biggest fruit in the world and can weigh up to 80lbs. Yeah that's huge! You can definitely find smaller sizes in your local supermarket and can even get them in the can HERE. Jackfruit is really good for you and an excellent source of vitamin B6. So eat as much as you want!
In the vegan world, jackfruit is a great replacement for pulled pork because it has the same consistency when cooked. The trick is you have to cook the jackfruit when it's young (not ripe). If you wait until it ripes, it will have a very sweet taste which is not good for this recipe. To stay on the safe side, I used Organic Jackfruit in the can.
The one issue you may have with jackfruit in the can is the taste of the brine. I'll show you how to get rid of that awful taste in the steps below. Once you've gotten the brine out and seasoned the fruit properly, you'll have a recipe that's easy, versatile and the whole family will love it!
