  • 1-20 oz . can young green jackfruit in water , drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1/4 cup corned beef spice blend or pickling spices
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 beet (optional)
  • cheesecloth and kitchen twine (optional)


  1. Drain and rinse can of jackfruit. Place in crockpot.
  2. Add water, spices and apple cider vinegar. You may wish to place the spices in a piece of cheesecloth and tie up with kitchen twine, creating a spice sachet. Otherwise, you will need to pick the spices out by hand at the end of cooking, which is a pretty simple task.
  3. If you want the jackfruit to have the reddish flavor of corned beef, drop a beet into the crockpot at this point. It will not change the flavor and you will have a wonderful pickled stewed beet after cooking.
  4. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  5. This is what it will look like after 4 hours:
  6. After 4 hours, remove from crockpot and roughly chop the jackfruit.
  7. Add to Reuben sandwich or dip or eat with a fork. Delicious!
