1 Mature ‘ulu (firm breadfruit)
For better results, place your ‘ulu in the fridge overnight to remove the sap.
Place your whole ‘ulu in a boiling water for 40 minutes, constantly rotate the ‘ulu.
To know when your ‘ulu ready, a knife can be inserted easily into the center.
Once you know it's ready and cooled. Cut the portion needed and remove the skin by scraping with a knife or spoon. Any extra ‘ulu can be covered and put in the freezer for later use.
Pro Tip: Texture of ‘ulu may change after freezing but will be restored by the heat when cooking which reconnects starch molecules.
