directions

  • 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.
