Yield: 2 cups
DRAIN and rinse jackfruit, using a colander.

ADD jackfruit, paprika, smoked paprika, and salt.
ADD Barbecue Sauce until desired consistency and mix.
SIMMER for a few minutes, stirring frequently.
POUR into an oiled-coated casserole dish.
BAKE at 300F for 30 minutes.
SERVE as a Sloppy Joe sandwich filling and eat with Kristina's Coleslaw.
For this recipe you need green jackfruit--not ripe! Sometimes the can will say "young" or "unripe". My favorite canned jackfruit is the Native Forest organic jackfruit, because it uses lime juice, instead of preservatives.
