A brief search on the web shows that Breadfruit may be eaten as a vegetable when under-ripe, or as a fruit when ripe. We've waited a bit too long so no longer have the option of choice B)

Does anyone have recommendations on how best to cook and prepare the ripened fruit?

We're going to try the pancake method mentioned here:

Westerners tend to prefer the mature, hard fruit to be peeled, sliced and fried with a little vegetable oil. Alternatively, the soft-ripe fruit may be halved, the pulp spooned into a skillet, flattened, and fried like a thick pancake in a little vegetable oil. Nutritionally, breadfruit flesh is an excellent staple, rich in proteins and with a range of amino acids. However, it contains a lot of starch and it must be supplemented with green leafy vegetables to provide a balanced meal.

I'll post a follow-up on how it tastes, but would still love to know how others may have prepared it and what works best for future endeavors!
