Breadfruit, what about it?
I'm coming from outer space again... Breadfruit, a tropical fruit, hangs in big trees, grows to about the size of a volley ball, outer skin green. Where did the name come from, does it have potential in a bread? Any recipes out there?
In my reading....
"The dried fruit has been made into flour and improved methods have been explored in Barbados and Brazil with a view to substituting breadfruit in part for wheat flour in breadmaking. The combination has been found more nutritious than wheat flour alone. Breadfruit flour is much richer than wheat flour in lysine and other essential amino acids. In Jamaica, the flour is boiled, sweetened, and eaten as porridge for breakfast."
