Edward & Sons’ Native Forest Organic Young Jackfruit is an excellent vegan, soy, and gluten-free substitute for meat. Young jackfruit is big and prickly on the outside with a fleshy interior that has a mild flavor and meaty texture when cooked. It is a versatile meat substitute that can be mashed and seasoned for vegan chicken salad or seasoned and cooked for a great taco filling.P.O. Box 1326, Carpinteria, CA 93014, www.edwardandsons.com
