Hello my Dearest Foodies,

Today I have for you very tasty and comforting stew to warm up your bellies. I know not all of you are living in the same climate with winter season like I do, nevertheless, I am sure you can enjoy it doesn't matter where you are.

Anyway, JACKFRUIT is an amazing fruit that getting it's popularity by the minute, especially among vegans. They are number of reasons why, which of course the HEALTH BENEFITS and MEAT SUBSTITUE OPTION are on top of the list. This green giant with pricks and yellow flesh can not only be eaten raw, but prepared in many ways in all recipes whether desserts or savory.

However, since I live in Canada, finding this fruit is not that easy. There for, when I spotted Jackfruit in the box by UPTON'S NATURALS in Walmart's produce section, right next tofu and other vegan products. What I most liked about this product, was that they are offering totally natural Jackfruit chunks, without anything added. Although, they have many choices with seasoning and sauces, but I prefer to make my own.

At this time I decided to make a stew and it turned out absolutely delicious. I will be experimenting more with this product more in the future for sure and I hope you try it too.

I wish you a wonderful week 🎄😍🎄

Thank you so much, I am happy to hear that 😊

I've only had jackfruit; fresh or dried up.
Never cooked in a stew.. must be interesting :)

Jackfruit is truly a wonder fruit! Can be prepared so many ways 😍

Oh yes, now that is a meal that would make me so very happy. Yum. I've never heard of jackfruit - so it was in the vegan section at walmart? amazing.

I am glad you like it my Dear and it was in produce section. There isn't really vegan section in Walmart, but they are vegan products in different sections allover the Walmart, lol. Thank you so much for visiting 😊

Amazing coincidence!
It was only yesterday when I saw some fresh Jackfruits at the farmer's market here in Crete but I didn't knew what it was and I just ignored it! I hope to find it again and have the chance to taste it soon :)
Thank you for sharing!

I am so happy to hear that. Let me know when you do! My pleasure and thank you for visiting 😊

Howdy Miss Lena! This is such a perfect post, that jackfruit stew is gorgeous! I've heard good things about it too but isn't it dog gone expensive?

Howdy Janton! Everything is good is expensive, only junk food is cheep. Unless you wanna live on beans, potatoes and cabbage.That is cheep and healthy, lol.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I am glad you like it 🎄😊🎄

I thought it was great and very unusual but then that's why you earn the big bucks! lol. You probably grew up on potatoes, beans, and cabbage.

What big bucks you are talking about??? LOL!!! Anyway, I love beans, cabbage and potatoes, however, I grew up on many other things. My grandmother was good cook and we had a garden 😊

Oh so that is how you started, with good, organic produce. That explains alot. I was just teasing about the big bucks. No, I was speaking faith talk, I was prophesying! lol.

Yes, that is true. Everything was really organic and I hope your prophesy will come true 😊

By the way, I saw this on Twiiter. You will laugh!


Ha! Oh man, that is too funny! That poor possum was so stuffed he couldn't move. Thanks for the laugh Miss Lena!

The stew looks yummy. I would enjoy a bowl. 😊

Thank you so much, I am glad you like it 😊

this looks so delicious and tasty❤️

Thank you so much, I am glad you like it 😊
