Not bad!

This looks like and is textured very similarly to chicken. It does have a faint tart aftertaste as others mentioned, but it seems to just be the flavor of the fruit and it's pretty easy to mask. I made a curry for my first jackfruit adventure, and it turned out pretty good. I think next I will try it with green chilies and black beans and make "chicken" tacos.

I love having this on hand when I want to make a healthy meal and don’t have meats on hand. I find I am just as satiated if I had eaten chicken or fish. I will keep ordering this. It’s easy to incooperate in a healthy pasta or rice dish. I’ve been using it with the Thrive Marinara sauce and it’s a winning combo.

I had tried a pre-seasoned/sauced jackfruit product by this brand before and didn’t like the taste. I decided to give this one a try and have to say it changed my mind about jackfruit. I rinsed it thoroughly to get rid of all the brine, removed any missed seeds and cooked it as one would carnitas. The result was great and could easily become a staple for my household.

I should first start with the fact that I am not a big jackfruit fan to begin with - wish I was. But sometimes I just want something that has a meaty texture...being vegan, that desire does happen every now and then for me. This particular item allows me to season how I like it - I throw it in a Thrive coconut wrap with some mano peach salsa, sunflower seeds and greens and I am good to go!

I used to be vegan, and even then I do not think I could eat this. The texture is so weird. I had to throw mine out.
