How to Cook Jackfruit Seeds

Did you know that Jackfruit seeds are edible? Once cooked, they are similar to chestnuts in texture and flavor. Enjoy as snack, or add to curries.

Boiling

In a large pot, cover Jackfruit seeds with water with about an inch of water above the seeds. Bring the water and seeds to a boil, then reduce to rolling simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the seeds can be easily pierced by a fork. Drain pot and spread the seeds out on a baking sheet to cool and dry. Peel off the outer, white layer. (The thin, brown layer is edible.)

Oven Roasting

Preheat oven to 400F.  Spread the Jackfruit seeds on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil (for easy clean up). Bake 20 minutes, or until the seeds can be easily pierced by a fork. Let cool. Once cool enough to touch, peel off the outer, white layer. (The thin, brown layer is edible.)

Pan Roasting

Add Jackfruit seeds to a dry, cast iron skillet. Roast the seeds over medium-high heat, shaking the pan occasionally, until the skin is blistered and cracked or until the seeds can be easily pierced by a fork. Let cool. Once cool enough to touch, peel off the outer, white layer. (The thin, brown layer is edible.)
