  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (180ºC).

  3. NOTE: If using fresh jackfruit, line your work surface with plastic wrap
  4. Carefully remove the core of the jackfruit by cutting into it at an angle.
  5. Pull each fruit out and remove its seeds and outer coating. Rinse the fruit thoroughly then dry.
