Jackfruit at local supermarket but no YOUNG JACKFRUIT for GUDEG JOGJA...

When finding some exotic tropical fruits at our local supermarket, we kind of get transformed back to our life in Indonesia...
Jackfruits are HUGE
Sold by the pound as they are quite heavy!
But of course, finding YOUNG JACKFRUIT for preparing the delicious Indonesian GUDEG JOGJA...?!
NO WAY!

Who does know this delicious dish?

Thanks for your visit and comment!

  1. I’ve never known about jackfruit. It looks very exotic and huge! Gudeg Jogja looks interesting :-)

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Guess that is quite possible as it is very common for Malaysia, Indonesia and the surrounding islands.
      Gudeg Jogja is one of my favorites, we ate it numerous times while living in Indonesia.

  2. Hello Mariette, Jackfruit is available here dried or sometimes canned, rarely fresh. Durians, on the other hand, are often available fresh, but it seems that in recent years they are not as common as they once were. I have never tried gudeg jogja. The next time I go to the South Asian store I will look to see if they have young canned jackfruit.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Yes, canned it is also available here but I've never seen the young canned jackfruit.
      Durians were delicious fresh, while living in Indonesia. We've seen them here also fresh, imported. Went with my Thai born friend to the air force store where she can buy things on her husband's card. They even had the frozen durian!
      Gudeg Jogja must come from the Yogjakarta area, a regional dish but a delicious one!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  3. I have visited Indonesia once but not found this dish. Did you make it? I can imagine you have enjoyed some kinds of durian.

    1. Dearest RTC,
      Guess it depended where you went in Indonesia as they have so many different ethnic groups and cultures. This stems from central Java, from Yogjakarta. While living and working there six days a week, I did never cook myself. The job was demanding enough, all in Bahasa Indonesia (similar to Malay) and then in the afternoons we did write/type the training manuals also. Days are very short too. We ate it several times at the dining room for the staff of our company and also at the restaurant.
      We sure did enjoy the fresh durian while living there and loved it!
      Hugs,

  4. Oh dearest Mariette!!! this is super cool that you posted about Jackfruits because we just harvested two Jackfruits from our tree last week. They are not that big but they look super good. It is still on our rice box waiting for it to be ripened in a state that will be good to make it as a sweet. Just like in other Malay countries, we also use jackfruits as a "vegetable" and cook them savory with meat and coconut milk :)

      Oh sure, you being a neighbor of Indonesia, must know about this vegetable dish cooked in coconut milk. You are lucky for having harvested two yourself.

  5. I will keep my eyes open next time I'm at the market Mariette, I haven't tested Jackfruit but I'm always willing to try something new ✨

      Well, you're a southern neighbor to Indonesia and guess at the Asian markets they sell it as well.

  6. I've heard of jackfruit, but I don't know that any of our local stores would sell it. Very exotic! The photo of the recipe looks so exotic as well. I wonder what other cultures and countries would consider exotic in terms of Canadian food? Poutine? (French fries covered in gravy and cheese curds, never had it, sounds disgusting and rather like an instant heart attack. I guess I'm not a "true" Canadian then. LOL.)

    1. Dearest Kim,
      For sure in the big cities of Canada this will be available as well as you have so many cultures within your borders.
      As for your mention of Québécoise cuisine 'Poutine' it is not that far off from my Province's Bourgondian dish of Sourded meat with fries. Prepared with vinegar, a bit of apple syrup and onions. It really is yummy!
      Don't think that Québec Province is known for high heart attack rates and the cheese curds don't need to be unhealthy as they can be below 10% sodium and cholesterol; just a matter of checking the label.
      You are more a homebound person that sticks to the life long known dishes. The work we've done for decades, consulting and lecturing all over the world makes you a lot more adventurous and we always tried the local far. In Japan I had whale at an authentic Japanese restaurant for the very first time in my life and enjoyed it! Why not? If it would be bad food, then the world would not be as over populated as it is!

  8. Crazy but I have never had jackfruit. I saw something at Costco that had it in it, but I have never tried it. Yes, My son arrived in Germany safely. They had their Coronavirus test and they came back negative and now he is in our apartment. This morning him and his dad walked from our apartment to the hausberg turm which is a large tower about 5 miles away and climbed to the top and then walked back home. My son just connected with his companion via internet. His companion lives in Leipzig. Anyway, they will study together for the next two weeks. Hopefully, my son will get a hang of the kids dialect as it is much different than where my husband is from Hesse. Have a great Sunday! My kids are all ready keeping me busy. Made pancakes for the girls and neighbor girls, the craft box has made it's apperance, and we have performed two science experients. I bought a chemistry box for the girls. Today they learned about chemical reaction and how tempeture can effect a reaction. It's only 11:17 so lord help us!

      Oh, we all can still try out many things we've never eaten before...
      Glad your son arrived safely and is at your apparment.
      Your son no doubt will adjust to the different intonation of dialect and pretty soon will get used to that! A challenge and a great learning experience.
      Your girls sound like very active and eager to learn a lot. The pancakes will be burnt off quickly...
      Good luck and hope the weather is good to you.

  9. Dear Mariette - I have seen Jackfruit growing in Sri Lanka, they look as if they are growing from an umbilical cord attached to a tree trunk. I have also eaten them there, and suspect that their dish tastes very similar to yours. Sri Lankans use coconut milk in the majority of their dishes.

    1. Dearest Rosemary,
      Yes, it is a different fruit in the eyes of Western people.
      Guess that the use of coconut milk makes dishes taste rather similar indeed.
      Would crave this favorite dish anytime but it is not available here...
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  11. Never have I seen this. Maybe I need to look a little harder at Publix, they should carry it. I do love coconut milk and fresh coconut. I will check this recipe out and stay on the watch.

      This was at Kroger... You can find canned Jackfruit at Trader Joe's and if you look for them, at many places no doubt.

    1. Beste Willy,
      Ja die behoren tot de grootste vruchten!
      Denk echt wel dat er in de grote steden in Nederland ook verse Jackfruit te vinden is, vanwege de grote Indonesische bevolkingsgroep in Nederland.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      If traveling to South East Asia, no doubt you have encountered them.
      It is a huge size, don't want any of those fall on your head.
