Jackfruit BBQ
“Jackfruit can be ordered from the Internet, but I was determined to find it in Louisville. I looked at health food stores and specialty markets in my neighborhood with no luck. I was excited when I stumbled upon some at a large national grocery store in my mom’s neighborhood. It was in syrup, but I didn’t realize that this was not what I wanted for this dish. I went straight home and made some of the most sickeningly sweet ‘pulled pork’ you have ever had. I tried to eat it, but threw my sandwich away after two bites. Life is too short to waste a meal on something terrible. Darrick hates to waste food and so he forced down the entire sandwich. However, the next day he suggested we ‘share it’ with the neighborhood squirrels.I finally procured jackfruit in brine from an Indian grocery store next to our favorite Indian restaurant. We bought twenty cans, and so began the long journey of making vegan pulled pork. It took eleven attempts, but I finally perfected the recipe. The secret is baking the jackfruit with the slightly sweet BBQ sauce. The flavor deepens and caramelizes in the oven and the jackfruit takes on a slightly chewy texture.”— Damaris PhillipsThis recipe is courtesy of Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy.

Langkasuy Ice Cream
"What's so special about this ice cream?" you may ask. Well, this ice cream flavor is something that you can only find in the Philippines. I'm sure that many of you haven't heard of it! It is called langkasuy, which is short for "langka" (jackfruit) and "kasuy" (cashew). Jackfruit is a popular tropical fruit in the Philippines, which, when fully ripe, has a delightfully sweet flavor. This ice cream captures the full flavor of this tropical fruit with the added crunchy texture and nutty flavor of cashews. I tell you, their flavors complement each other so well!
