What is Jackfruit?

It’s that time of the year again and here at Karuna we want to make sure your 2019 goals are a success. We are starting the year off with this simple and easy jackfruit recipe. Jackfruit is very popular in the plant based community for it’s meaty texture. It is a species of tree in the breadfruit, fig, and mulberry family and it originated in southwest India.  It absorbs flavors really well and it’s usually featured as a substitute for pulled pork or in vegan tacos. But those dishes while delicious, are usually very high in carbohydrates. This Mango Glazed Jackfruit recipe is a different twist on how to use this wonderful fruit.
