BBQ Jackfruit Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Last week I ate something I'd never had before but I'd been really curious about for a long time - jackfruit! I found a can of jackfruit in a little health food store in Joplin, Missouri a few months ago, but for months I couldn't decide what to make with it. That problem was solved as soon as I saw Ketty's BBQ Jackfruit Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. Looky here!
It looks so much like some sort of pulled pork it's scary! When I first took a bite of the jackfruit by itself I thought I wasn't going to like it because it was a little too tangy, but that's when the sweet potato came to the rescue and balanced out the tanginess with its carby sweetness. Jackfruit definitely has a meaty thing going on. The barbecue sauce brings the whole dish together beautifully, and I must confess I did not eat it in the most ladylike fashion. Usually I am a slow eater and I like to take dainty bites with a fork, but I was having a hard time resisting the urge to pick up the whole thing like a corn on the cob and going to town on it. I didn't do that, but I did pretty much inhale it in a matter of seconds! Thank you for sharing the recipe, Ketty!
