Now it is durian season again and this thorny fruit is the family's favourite fruit. Rich in protein and good for the brains but bad for diabetic patient for it is rich in fruit glucose. We had this for dessert last Sunday after a half stomach fulled lunch . We purposely kept a little space in our stomach for this King fruit. I thought of keeping some for making durian puffs but in the end I rather eat it fresh :)) the oomph is terrific.
The strong sweet aroma filled the whole house and if you think you want to hide it from your neighbor , think again for this is a fruit that you can't hide from your neighbor :p The aroma will reveal the fruit :p We bought some for Piggy Jo before she leaves for UK. The fruit was creamy and bitter sweet...yum yum yummy...will buy more for making pie and tarts and puffs and cake if possible...I think durian cake would be great.

I have seen many westerners eating this fruit at road side stalls :))
this fruit can be used to make ice cream, puffs, tarts and cakes
beautiful scent to some but to others it may be horrible...I have known of
locals who can't stand the smell of durian...strange coz it is such
a beautiful fruit God has ever invented...God has good taste :p
A delicious and soul satisfying dessert....mmmmm I want more.......but for health reason I have a few seeds...that's all...self control is the best prevention ever !!!! Will share more on this when I next buy the fruit for making cake. Will make one for Jo before she flies off to a land where she might not find any of this fruit there :))
Enjoy drooling at this durians for the time being :)
