  Welcome Harmac...

Your recipe just made me nostalgic...

Our neighbor, on the Island has a big old breadfruit tree and she was constanly giving them to us, even though we would hint that we still had some... She use to say: 'It's better than eating so much rice; just get a little codfish'.

I never had it as a salad; like Sandra said we ate it roasted(with a little codfish).

I assume it would be similar to a potato salad?

I haven't seen them in NY...

Thanks for the recipe, very much caribbean.

***********

   "The natives of the Pacific Islands are able to preserve breadfruit for up to two years by controlled fermentation. The fruits are cut and immersed in seawater for 24 hours, then removed and piled and covered with palm leaves for an extra 48 hours. After this period the fruits are soft with a strong odour, are squeezed to dough, which is dried and stored. This preservation technique was developed as a means of securing food after hurricanes. This preservation of breadfruit that has advantages of fortifying the starchy nutrient is diminishing due to modern breadfruit canning. The bland taste of breadfruit may find extensive use in blending, mixes and fillers in foods. The first visitors to taste the fruit found its taste and feel similar to that of bread, hence its name".

I use to get it in New York at the PR or Latino/philipino stores. Baking them in the oven or slicing them , then frying them in a little olive/butter is another way to go instead of fried potatoes less starch.

In my time, there were just two ways to serve breadfruit. Boiled or roasted. Now I'm seeing so many other ways. good. I guess breadfruit will soon be added on menus worldwide.

Anyone ever ate breadnuts? Mmmmmmm. Delicioso.

breadnuts are small, dark-brown nuts grown in a breadfruit. The breadfruit tree and breadnut tree are similar. When the breadnuts are ready to be eaten, the ripe breadfruit falls to the ground. The breadnuts are removed from the breadfruit and cooked with plenty salt. It's a feast...well for me. I love them with a greedy passion.

The Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis), Malayalam: kada-chakkai, Hawaiian: ‘ulu, Indonesian: sukun Tagalog: kolo; is a tree and fruit native to the east Indian Ocean and western Pacific Ocean islands. It has also been widely planted in tropical regions elsewhere. It was first collected and distributed by Lieutenant William Bligh as one of the botanical samples collected by HMS Bounty in the late 18th century, on a quest for a cheap high-energy food source for British slaves in the West Indies.

Breadfruit grows to a height of 20 m. The large and thick leaves are deeply cut into pinnate lobes. All parts of the tree yield latex, a milky juice. This latex is used for boat caulking

The breadfruit dont have a seed, but the breadnut tree does they are different tree's.

I know there are no seeds in breadfruit, but the breadnut grows inside a fruit like the breadfruit. You can't tell them apart.
