Breadfruit Bliss

After the cricket match on Boxing Day, we went to friends who live at Kerevat. Debbie is a great cook and she makes something everyone needs to taste before they die – breadfruit chips!!

The breadfruit is picked before it is ripe, sliced up and deep-fried in coconut oil. Bliss!!

Breadfruit comes from a tall tree which grows in tropical areas; fast growing, it can get to a height of 28 metres. Click here to find out how breadfruit caused the Mutiny on the Bounty!!!

Prior to my toothy troubles, I loved trying new foods!

--breadfruit --I have always wondered what it tasted like.

Are there not enough house pets to support a part time vet in Rabaul? I guess I'm a lucky cat after all.

Read quite a lot on books about South Pacific was about breadfruit (fruta pão in portuguese).

Now got some more information about that fruit.

Once again you have entertained us with your delightful photos, and once again you have educated us. Now my mouth is watering to try some breadfruit chips.

Thanks for adding a link to my daily photo blog.

Happy New Year!

You know they actually have packaged breadfruit chips here in Jamaica? :-) They're pretty good actually, but nothing like having it fresh.

Most Jamaicans prefer their breadfruit roasted, so the whole breadfruit will be roasted on an open flame. Whatever roasted breadfruit is not eaten will go into the fridge and will be fried (also in coconut oil) for breakfast the next day.

That sounds good to me. I am surprised at the tale about the ship and why the expedition failed. I had not heard that. But surely must have and forgot it.

These are nice photographs and you have made the story most interesting.

Fried! Isn't that heresy these days? But delicious heresy, I know.

I reckon I had better look out for breadfruit in Adelaide. Those chips look 'corker'.

Thanks for all your warm Christmas wishes, Jules. As you know, we have been in Sydney and unfortunately, didn't get even close to a computer. I hope yours was beaut and you put on less weight than we did !!

dive said...

Damn, that looks delicious!

quintarantino said...

By the way, let me wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR and that all of your dreams come true!

I tasted breadfruit in Tahiti earlier this year - and learned all about the Bounty and its crew! But I didn't have chips; it was made up into a sort of mash, like mashed potato but gluggier. Wasn't quite my cup of tea but the chips in coconut oil sound delicious if a tad fattening. We're a bit bigger than we were before Christmas - the merry season was merry indeed.
