Hello, I think this blog may be short, but too long for a tweet. Jackfruit is a booming business at the moment, with a whole array of products on the shelves. However, with the prepackaged, prefalvoured jackfruit, it can be pretty expensive, but fear not! Most supermarkets now do tins of young jackfruit, the type you need for pulled style foods. Here's a tiny round up of jackfruit tins.

Please note! Asian supermarkets tend to have jackfruit, but this isn't possible for many people, so I won't go too much into this. But if you have a store near you, it's worth a check!

The best! 

The best ever that I've seen is Aldi for £1.09. But Aldi seem to vary their stock frequently, so this is more of a bonus *look out for it* than a definite find. The brand seen was this Sun Pride one:

The pretty good!

Asda and Sainsbury's also sell this brand for £1.20. 

The good enough I guess!

Tesco have now released their own brands tins for £2. You get 10g more in the tin, but that doesn't equate to the 80p more. But good to know if Tesco is your only available supermarket.

A little recipe

No good me telling you this joyous tip if you don't know what to do with it! Well the truth is, I just Google recipes to try until I find one with easy to find ingredients that are cheap enough in case I muck it up. So I've done this! This recipe from It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken has very normal ingredients and is pretty quick. But there are tons of recipes online if you fancy something else. 

Hope this helps!
