*Breadfruit is hard to obtain in the States but makes this dish most authentic. Two alternatives: cassava (called yuca in parts of USA, or sweet cassava in Jamaica) is long and brown, like a giant carrot, and often is sold with a waxed skin that needs to be removed. It is not related to breadfruit but is a starchy tuber with many of the same properties. Potatoes are an acceptable substitute for either tropical starchy vegetable. About 25 percent of the breadfruit and cassava are lost in trimming, less for potatoes.
