Vienna. Every time I visit Vienna's incredible Naschmarkt, I'm temporarily inspired to become a serious cook. Often I buy a food we've never tried before just to learn and experience something new. Attracted and tempted by the enormous size of a tropical Jackfruit, we carried a hefty slice home. However, as we didn't know anything about it and didn't want to accidentally poison ourselves or eat the wrong parts or eat it raw when it should be cooked, I did what any cautious person would do and researched this mysterious fruit on the Internet. Cautioned that the Jackfruit is so extremely sticky it is used to make glue and that it could ruin a knife or cutting board, we selected our least-favorite knife and covered the cutting board with foil.
Taste: OK—not bad, not especially great. Time spent cleaning the knife: about 20 minutes. Conclusion: Glad we tried it but not inclined to use our knives on it again.
