Both variants of jackfruit come from the same tree, but they offer different culinary experiences based on their ripeness.

  • Yellow jackfruit: This matured version boasts a sweet, tropical flavor similar to fruits like banana or pineapple. A soft texture makes it perfect for desserts, smoothies, and other snacks. 
  • Green jackfruit: This unripened version features a neutral flavor and a meaty texture. It readily absorbs flavors, making it a popular meat substitute. When cooked, green jackfruit can easily become a replacement meat for tacos, curries, and other savory dishes.

H3 Instructions
  1. Shred the jackfruit: Open the can and drain the syrup. Using two forks, shred the canned jackfruit into bite-sized pieces. Alternatively, you may use a food mixer to shred the fruit to your desired texture.
  2. Sauté the aromatics: Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until softened (around 5 minutes).
  3. Spice it up: Add chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper to the pan. Cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Simmer and shred: Add the jackfruit broth, and lime juice to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the fruit is tender. Using two forks, shred the fruit while it simmers.
  5. Cook to a crisp: Once the liquid has mostly evaporated, increase the heat to medium-high. Cook and stir occasionally until the jackfruit is golden brown and crispy in parts.
  6. Putting it all together: Serve the carnitas on tortillas. Add toppings of your choice, such as cilantro, diced red onion, salsa, and guacamole.

Extra Tip:

  • As an alternative to cooking on the pan, set the jackfruit pieces on a baking sheet. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C), and bake for 20 minutes. Adjust based on preferences or until crispy.
