FBR Loves Jackfruit
Jackfruit is the largest tree fruit in the world, reaching up to 100 pounds.
Used in Vegan “Pulled pork” substitute, soups, and so much more. Native Forest® says, “It’s a great alternative to chicken and pork. Its fleshy interior has a meaty texture similar to chicken. As it cooks, it flakes & shreds, making it ideal for vegan pulled pork and chicken recipes. A mild flavor makes it a great base for sauces and seasonings.”
It has been called the “miracle” food because it provides so many nutrients and calories.
