Kosher Canned Jackfruit?
I was wondering if anyone knows of Canned Jackfruit with a hechsher (kosher certification logo) on it and where I can buy it. I plan on using it to make a vegan "Pulled Pork" dish. BTW, I live in the Chicago, IL metro area.
That might not work for your recipe. Most jackfruit meat substitute/vegan recipes use young/green jackfruit (either fresh cut) or stored in water. The Sunlee brand is in syrup which is a more of a desert style. I checked the OU site and Siong Hong makes a dehydrated jackfruit which is probably closer to what you need for your recipe.
Chabad says that frozen vegetables (not from Israel or China) would be acceptable without hechsher. Local Vietnamese/Thai/Chinese markets might have frozen jackfruit from Thailand (most of it is produced there) or the Philippines..
