My week in meals – w/c 24/03/19

This week we tried jackfruit for the first time. I have to admit, I was nervous. I wasn’t sure how to cook it and I didn’t know what to expect, other than I’d read that it had a texture similar to pulled pork. In fact, there were lots of recipes for pulled jackfruit on the internet. Well, there was nothing to dislike about it but also nothing particularly to really like about it. I won’t rush back for it, but I also wouldn’t dismiss it if I saw it again.
