Breadfruit - 7

© Ellen Blonder
Today, I finally added detail to the cross-section of the breadfruit. I wasn't sure until now if I should even include it. As long as it was just a white blob, it looked distracting, but I like it there now.

It has been interesting to figure out how I might use this as an ingredient. After baking the halves, removing the center brown stem and peeling them, they're creamy and bland, somewhat like a cross between a potato and zucchini. I discovered if I cut the halves into chunks, they browned nicely in a skillet with a little oil, forming a slightly crisp exterior to contrast with a creamy interior.
