We eat it fresh or use it to make cake, puff, dodoi, ice cream and etc. It is the king of fruits.

Everyone smells durian differently. Maybe I associate the durian with childhood memories of rushing downstairs to feast on its custardy flesh, eating as much as I can get away with before the rest of my family finishes the rest. If we had leftovers, we’d put them into the fridge and there’d be a contest as to who would wake up the earliest to finish the rest. There are also different kinds of durian and personally, I think naysayers have been eating the kind that only the most diehard durian fans eat (either that or they haven’t gotten past the “stench” to even try to taste a morsel). The somewhat tough, slightly unripe and bitter kind is not one for newbies. Personally, my favourite is the Thai durian (monthong or chanee, I forget) when it’s mostly sweet. I recently found a restaurant selling Durian Pancakes which are my current obsession. They’re not actually pancakes (you know, that whole thing about naming things which totally does not translate into the final product?). They’re more like rolls filled with whipped cream infused with durian essense and a small slice of durian. Look for it online. I think I saw a recipe somewhere. God, I miss durian.

Luckily it isn’t banned here in the US like other countries. I didn’t realize that people really can’t stand the smell–I guess since I grew up eating it the smell doesn’t bother me. if I had a nickel for every person that wouldn’t eat something just because it smells bad I would be a millionaire! I don’t think people should do that especially with DURIAN FROYO! I think this is the perfect compliment to Durian! Now, let’s see if any froyo shops actually adopt the flavor! :)

P.S. If there are any avid froyo lovers like me on the East Coast–a NEW shop is opening soon called CUPS frozen yogurt and they are giving away FREE yogurt from I think 1PM-10PM on Grand Opening day! Don’t quote me on this though– I just stumbled upon it at facebook.com/cupsfrozenyogurt But I’ll be there fore sure! :)

My mother and grandmother loved it, but dad not so much. It used to be that all the women ate it in the garage so dad did not have to smell it. Now my husband will tolerate it, but he does not share my fondness of durian. The durian shakes you can get a Vietnamese restaurant are pretty good.

Your durian ice cream recipe reminds me of Singapore durian puffs – it is simply puff stuffed with durian cream paste eaten cold. The best durians are from Malaysia.

I have never seen it here in Munich. But now I will keep my eyes open – I love to taste ‘new’ fruits.

As for me, I’m actually neutral about durian. I don’t mind if people love it and eat it. For some reason:
1. I kinda have a less sensitivity nose to smell, so the smell doesn’t hit me as hard (unless we’re going to an enclosed space where the durian is stored – then I’ll smell it, but I won’t mind it too much).
2. I prefer crunchy fruits, or the least creamy bits of the durian flesh. The durian lovers claim it’s the worst part, but hey, everyone gets what they want (more for them, which is fine by me).

I think of durian as the really strong pungent cheese (those blue cheese or vintage cheese with a really soft, creamy texture). The “good” durian is subjective – some like a really sweet durian, or a really aromatic, bitter one (think strong black coffee – bitter, aromatic/pungent).

Its creamy texture is literally like cream – I’m thinking somewhere like a ripe avocado and ripe banana when you mush it for banana bread.

Of course, frozen durians aren’t going to be as good as the fresh ones. But it’s a good thing homesick people can have to remind them of home.

I heard another counter “therapy” for the “heat” of the durian is drinking water out of the inner rind of the durian shell, and also using that water to rinse your hands will get rid of the smell.
Mangosten is another popular counter action for it “cools” the heat of the durian.
Salt and water is the third I’ve heard.
