While most tropical people use breadfruit in other ways, Americans like them fried. Compared to potato fries they are more aromatic, have just a touch of fruitiness in the flavor, and they absorb less oil. To quote L. "These are so good French fries will be forever ruined for me".

Oil (1)
-- Serve With
Salt
Vinegar (2)

  1. Slice BREADFRUIT about 3/8 inch thick and cut rind from the slices. Cut into sticks about 3/8 inch wide by random lengths. Watch for soft pasty areas of spoilage and cut them out.
  2. Heat enough OIL for deep frying to 350°F and fry Breadfruit sticks in small batches. They are done when they feel crispy when you stir them and they start to brown a bit on the corners and edges.
  3. Drain thoroughly over paper towels, tossing a couple times to drain oil out of the pores.
  4. Serve warm with Salt and a good Vinegar for dipping.
NOTES:
  1. Oil:   Use a fairly neutral high temperature oil. I use Olive Pomace.
  2. Vinegar:   Malt vinegar or Sukang Iloco are good, balsamic or rice vinegars could also be used.
  3. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
