  • Choose mature breadfruit with brown patches, instead of a bright green and spiky fruit.
  • Soak the fruit in water for 2-5 minutes to remove sticky latex or dirt present on the skin. 
  • Using a sharp knife, carve out the stem of the fruit. You can coat the knife with oil to make the carving easier.
  • Cut an "X" at the bottom of the fruit to allow steam to release when it roasts in the oven. 
  • Coat the fruit with vegetable oil and bake it in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. Traditionally, it is cooked over charcoal.

  • Allow the baked fruit to cool and peel off the skin with a knife. 
  • Cut it into half and remove the core pieces. 
  • Cut the roasted breadfruit into wedges and season it with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

You can also fry the breadfruit wedges in oil until brown and spice it with your favorite seasonings. For a sweet twist, you can serve it sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
