Breadfruit is a fruit but to me seems more like a potato. It was a staple food here in the Seychelles, as well as in South Pacific and tropical areas. It contains considerable amounts of starch and is seldom eaten raw. It may be roasted, baked, boiled, fried, or dried and ground into flour. In the Seychelles, they like to add it to Ladob, which is a local dessert made with yams, cassava and plantains, boiled with coconut milk, vanilla and nutmeg. There is also a savory version whereby the saltfish is added and salt is in lieu of the sugar.
