Weird food

IMG_3210Saw this at the grocery store and have no idea what it is.  It’s weird though.  I’m thinking squash.

    Jack Fruit… Yuck

  5. I have never seen this before. Really odd

  6. I like the freeze dried jack fruit.

    • I have no idea how it’s eaten so that’s the first I’ve heard of it. Never saw one before this summer. Is it eaten raw or what?

      • I’ve eaten it fresh (raw) and as freeze dried chips. You could probably find the freeze dried fruit in an Asian food store. The fresh fruit has texture that makes me think of an oversized kernel of corn. The flavour is particular – you either like it or it makes you gag.

      • OMG…I’m not even going to try it. I do appreciate this info, however. Thank you:)

  7. isn’t that the one that stinks but tastes heavenly ???? 😀
