Breadfruit , Fruta de Pan

Breadfruit trees have wonderfully large unique thick leaves with deeply cut pinate lobes. They produce an abundant of fruit which can be prepared in several ways. My father insisted we grow these since he had them at his nursery in Grand Cayman.  It took us a while to find them. They are a favorite cocktail hour food in our family ... adults and great grandchildren alike. Sliced thinly and cooked in a little oil till light golden brown with a sprinkling  of salt ...there is nothing better. Great substitute for chips with dips, although totally delectable by itself.
