This one's a quick and easy recipe. As I said previously, my mom said jackfruit seeds could be boiled or roasted. They look like chestnuts, don't they? Sort of tastes like it too.
Read my primer on how to eat jackfruit if you don't know.

Boil water! Add jackfruit seeds!
That's it! :P
OK, OK. I think I left the seeds simmering for about 15 minutes? That seemed to do the trick. Leave the seeds for longer if they're not soft enough for your liking.
They really did taste a bit like chestnuts, slightly starchy and crunchy. The only problem is... well, how do I put this delicately?
Let's just say, I remembered a childhood ditty about why jackfruit rhymes with fart in Vietnamese. :P
You've been warned!
