Durian - Golden Pillow

HLing | Sep 18, 2006 04:54 PM

I just now, killed a Durian...with knife and bare hand..the little fruit flies on the outside didn't have a chance. I blew them away before the slaughter. Strangely enough, my apartment also became vacant for what was to come.

Inside the spiky dinosaurer skin there were 4 chambers. I quickly cut through and rescued the limp lumps of gold. Suddenly, out of no where the big flies buzzed near.

I just wanted to see taste what really really fresh Durian is all about.


Now I know how something can be at once repulsive and irresistable. It being a very ripe Durian, is much sweeter than the other just cut durian I had while in Hong Kong. I would have some, run to the other room, think it over, then come back and have a little more...

It's too mushy to deep fry like tempura, but I am thinking about deep frying the leftovers a la Deep Fried Ice Creme.
