When my landlord and his family returned to Phnom Penh after spending their New Year holidays in his hometown in Stung Treng, they brought us a lot of things for pasalubong! One of them was this medium-sized khnao, or jackfruit, that I cut in half. The sweet scent of khnao filled our kitchen for several days.
I don’t really like jackfruit eaten as it is but I love it when it’s made into a smoothie. A perfect thirst-quencher.
