  1. Break the jackfruit into pieces (if you’re using tinned, drain and rinse weland put in a pan with the cider and enough water to cover the fruit. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 30-35 minutes or until all of the liquid has evaporated and the jackfruit is tender. Shred into strands using two forks.
  2. Mix together the slaw ingredients with some seasoning and leave to marinate for 20 minutes, stirring once.
  3. Meanwhile, put all the BBQ sauce ingredients in a small pan and heat gently. Once simmering, remove from the heat.
