Drain the jackfruit and wash well. Squeeze out the liquid really well by pressing the jackfruit pieces in a paper napkin. Shred in a food processor or thinly slice using a knife. (For more flavor, toss the shredded jackfruit in the spices, herbs, lime juice and marinate in the fridge for an hour or overnight. then cook with water)
Heat 1 tsp oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add shredded jackfruit and all dry spices (or 1.5 tbsp or more premade Jamaican jerk seasoning). Cook for 2-3 mins or until the spices start to smell roasted.
Add lime juice and water and sugar and cook partially covered for 25 to 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Once the mixture is dry, taste and adjust salt and heat. Add in the 1 tsp oil and continue to roast the jackfruit until golden brown on some edges. Serve this in wraps, sandwiches, tacos, nachos.
