Jackfruit Panacotta

Panacotta (from Italian cooked cream) is an Italian dessert made by simmering together cream, milk and sugar, mixing this with gelatin, and letting it cool until set. It is generally from the Northern Italian region of Piemonte, although it is eaten all over Italy, where it is served with wild berries, caramel, chocolate sauce or fruit coulis. It is not known exactly how or when this dessert came to be, but some theories suggest that cream, for which mountainous Northern Italy is famous, was historically eaten plain or sweetened with fruit or hazelnuts.

Jackfruit Crumble

Here's one of those recipes from my mom's collection. One that has childhood memories attached to it. I've been meaning to prepare this since a long time, however the aroma of a ripe jackfruit is too tempting to keep aside for the crumble. Recently my nephew visited us with a generous helping of this luscious fruit, so I decided to finally try it out.
