'ulu

IMG_7562 It was my first time trying 'ulu (pronounced ooh-loo in Hawaiian...breadfruit a.k.a. artocarpus altilis.

When I was younger I was a really picky eater and whenever my mom baked these in the oven, the smell really turned me off.

I'm glad I tried it.

I think my Aunty said she baked it then sauteed it with butter.

The texture was a bit "spongy", but the taste reminded me of sweet potato...delicious.

Of all the tropical fruits that a person can eat in Hawaii....this one just didn't end up on our table much. I remember eating them but nothing memorable comes to mind.
