Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world
Jackfruits

Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, one fruit can weigh between 10 and 100 pounds with yellow, banana-flavored flesh and contain 100 to 500 seeds in a single fruit. The jackfruit is rich in protein, potassium, calcium, and iron. 

Do not let your jackfruit go bad, when fully ripe, the unopened jackfruit emits a strong disagreeable odor, resembling that of decayed onions, while the pulp of the opened fruit smells of pineapple and banana. Jackfruits turn brown and deteriorate quickly after ripening. 

No one knows the jackfruit place of origin but in Africa, it is often planted in Central African Republic, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania Zanzibar.

Simple Cooking Tips

Make sure your cooking work area has good lighting so you can safely see what you are cutting, seasoning and cooking.

Get comfortable with the recipe, read it all the way through. Always read and re-read your recipes before you start cooking.

Season and taste as you go. Always taste your food before seasoning.

Spices and herbs are essential to African food cooking and baking. Keep your spices away from sources of heat like the stove or lights. Herbs and spices can lose their flavor when exposed to humidity and heat.

Recipes are only a guideline so feel free to substitute items that you like.

When cooking with chili peppers, protect your hands and eyes by wearing rubber gloves. Or coat your hands in vegetable oil and wash them with soap and water immediately after handling.
