Jack Fruit Almond Biscotti! .
If you've ever wondered what Juicy Fruit would taste like in fruit form, then you should try Jack Fruit! Followed a simple biscotti recipe and used coarsely crushed salted almonds along with Jack Fruit that I dried in the oven. You can buy them in canned form at most Asian supermarkets; they'll be kept in a sugar syrup. Save that syrup! Rinse the fruit pieces in water and lightly dry with paper towel. I sliced mine into strips. Lay them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 170 F for 4-6 hours, depending on thickness. Check every two hours. Think dry like dried mangoes. Chop them up to the size of a dried cranberry; add desired amount to biscotti recipe. Boil syrup in a saucepan until it's reduced down to about 1/4 cup; let cool. Add to 1 cup of powdered sugar, and add yellow-orange food coloring if desired. Add tablespoons of milk and 1/4 cups of powdered sugar until you have the desired consistency of your glaze. Glaze should not be too runny. Now you have a Jack Fruit flavored glaze! I melted dark chocolate chips with butter for the chocolate drizzle. Drizzle chocolate and Jack Fruit glaze one at a time; let each dry and set for ∼30 minutes to an hour before adding the other. Enjoy!
I had the great opportunity to do a live art piece for @gospelincministries “Friendraiser” last night at @haus820 . They are a very special community outreach for the homeless in our city of Lakeland.

Throwback to few weeks back. Working progress. And this mirror is a bit deceiving. It’s like a hate/love for this mirror that makes you look a tad smaller than you are. And yes if you know me you know I’m pretty vain and I love dressing up for the heck of it. Cause why not ?
