Breadfruit is a large fruit with bumpy green skin and a bland cream-colored center. It was originally brought to the Caribbean as an inexpensive food source for slaves. It is available at Latin American specialty stores.
- Roast the breadfruit whole over charcoal (the best method), or directly over a gas burner.
- Turn the fruit as it begins to char. The roasting takes about an hour.
- When steam starts to escape from the stem end, the breadfruit is done.
- Remove the breadfruit from the fire, and cut a circle at the stem end.
- Scoop out the heart, and discard it.
- Scoop out the meat, or cut off the charred outer skin, and cut the meat into slices, and serve it hot with butter.
