Jackfruit My Favorite Vegetable

July 25, 2017

I hated doing household chores growing up. Cooking dishes, laundry and drying rice grains in the blistering heat I dreaded doing them when I was young. Now, I am grateful being able to cook the dishes that I used to eat like my grandmother’s cooking. Just last week, I was so ecstatic when I saw a jackfruit at 10Box store so I bought it even though it could cost me a fortune to have it as I had to pay it per pounds. Even on sweltering heat outside I got the jackfruit sliced and cut into pieces from its flesh even with my small knife I was amazed I got it done so quickly. The sweat I had dripping from my forehead into my chest reminds me when harvesting rice grains in the open field at the farm. I had not sweat like that in a very long time. It was very unpleasant to say the least.

Mango Ice Pops


Anyway, I cooked my favorite vegetable of all time, Jackfruit paired with Galunggong fish (Paksiw) and it felt gratifying after wanting this vegetable for so many years. It tasted really good as I remember when my grandmother cooks this vegetable. I also made Mango Float, Mango Ice Pops (Ice Candy) and Goulash. Goulash is dish from Euro Bistro (German Cuisine) but its kind of remind me of Caldereta without potatoes and carrots.
