SQF Advent Calendar – 18th December BBQ Jackfruit Pastry Parcels Recipe Card

  • Share
The countdown to Christmas has started – and so has the SQF Advent Calendar! Every day we’ll bring you either a fact of the day or a festive recipe card, so keep visiting our website and follow us on social media to see what we’re up to this festive season!

It’s the eighteenth day on our advent calendar – a week to go until Christmas Day! With the rising demand for vegan and vegetarian showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon, Christmas and New Year party food will need to adapt for these new diets and a desire to become a healthy flexitarian – so our BBQ Jackfruit Pastry Parcels are just the thing to keep everyone happy at festive gatherings!

Jackfruit has been the next new ingredient this year, with the fruit being used across savoury and sweet recipes to cater for vegetarian and vegan diets. The jackfruit tree originates from South Asia, and in a single year can produce as many as two hundred fifty fruits. That’s a lot of tacos to munch up!

Many refer to the jackfruit tree as a ‘wonder tree’ because every part of it has its own use – the fruit is  consumed as food, the leaves are fed to livestock, the tree and branches are valued for the manufacture of wood products and the roots are utilized as medicine. In fact, extracts from the jackfruit tree can be used to treat fever, asthma and diarrhea – all the more reason to keep eating jackfruit!
