Directions

  1. Put salted meat into a pot with water. Bring to a boil and drain, repeat three times to remove preserving salt. Cook until almost tender. Drain.
  2. Wash and peel the breadfruit, cut into eight sections, remove the center lengthwise of each section, cut into 1/2" slices.
  3. Sauté onions and garlic in hot oil until onions are translucent. Add chive thyme and salted meat, hot pepper and 3 cups coconut milk.
  4. Cover pot and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes until breadfruit is cooked and tender; add more coconut milk if necessary and put salt to taste. (Salt may not be necessary since the salted meat flavours the dish).
  6. When cooked liquid should be absorbed and breadfruit mixture will look mushy.
  7. Remove pepper before serving.
