  4. Hi Ridwan, sad to say we don't have canned jackfruit in our supermarkets...but perhaps in our local Asian market. Looks and tastes I'm sure; absolutely delicious!

    BTW-I did make your yummy spices walnuts, which is actually: candied spiced walnuts, that we also have, but your unique spices inspired me...even more. I did make it, and I'm about to post it on my next post, linking back to you!
