How can you tell when breadfruit is ripe? How do you prepare it?

You cut the green skin off, slice it in half, scoop the seeds out, then slice it in thin (1/4") crescent shaped slices. You soak it in salt water for a while, drain and dry off slices and then fry in coconut oil. It has the flavor of potato, but is much more creamy in texture.
I don't think there is a "ripeness" test, only size. If its a certain size its o.k. to harvest form the tree.

When it was prepared for us in Jamaica, they just put the whole fruit on a fire. When its cooked (I have no idea how long), they just cut it up and eat it.

I've never cooked breadfruit but it sounds like it's a lot like cooking eggplant!

I love the bread fruit, sliced up and cooked like french fries.

It also makes one really nice mash.

Last but not least is excellent baked like a yam or potato.

Yummy! Smooth and creamy.

The only thing I would mention is when peeling the green skin off, I keep it in cool water with a squeeze of lime juice to keep it from turning brown to fast. Potatoes turn brown after being peeled but a bread fruit turns brown much faster.

Some of our neighbors also slice it in chunks like the green pumpkins or chocho here and stew it, or cook it in a soup, which is also very good, not to mention very good for you!

There are several kinds you handle different ways. The most common ones here are eaten green. Size doesn't matter it should be firm and no smell when it is green.
I favor the way in Jamaica as well. You put in the fire and keep turning it until it is black all over. You can peel it and eat it like that or slice it and fry it, or in soups, mashed, etc. Rich slightly smoky flavor and better texture than cooking it unroasted.
It comes from Tahiti and they cook it Jamaica style too.
Or bake it in pits with everything else.
Ripe ones are used in desserts and things like bread puddings in Jamaica.
You can make like fence fries without deep frying. Just pan fry it with a bit of oil in any size slices.
