I have been obsessed for a couple of years.
I was actually turned on to this obsession by a man I really don’t think much of (David Wolfe), but on this, he was correct.
I love this fruit.
I dream about this fruit.
I can taste it if I think about it hard enough.
I will take walks, trains and buses to get it.
DURIAN DURIAN DURIAN DURIANNNNNNNN!!!!
This big spiky fruit is from Thailand. It is sweet and pungent. It is high in sulfur compounds, which gives it a strong… stench. BUT I PROMISE!!! Give it a chance, and the taste will win you over. It is creamy, vanilla almond banana onion custard amazingness.
To eat like we eat, press around the spikes at the top of the fruit until you find the natural line if fissure. Run you finger down it to open. There will be five pods.
Once you have extracted all the goodness, you can scoop out some of the left over flesh from the shells.
Then you will have all your meat.
I then separate the skins;
From the flesh on the inside;
This fruit is full of good fats, vitamin A and fiber. It can produce heat in the body, so don’t eat TO much in the summer.
I live for this fruit. I love this fruit. It is the king of fruits, and king of my heart.
Until next time fruit fans.
