I was born and grew up in a township in Bengal and I was very fortunate that we had various fruit trees, one of which was a kathal tree, from which we picked sweet jackfruits.
When the fruit was in season my mum would use some for making sabzi, some for pickling and she would leave a few fruits on the tree to ripen.
Jackfruit is such an underrated fruit, and for years we couldn’t get it unless you went to a speciality shop, but now all the supermarkets stock it in tins.
