Durian stinks

Posted on: March 31, 2010

Durian smells putrid and tastes putrid. Yuck!

I felt inspired to try one after one of the raw foodies I admire raved about them. I should have heeded the comment about the smell but curiosity got the best of me…again.

Like another blogger wrote about Durian, the spikes and stink should be enough for any mammal to STAY AWAY but humans have been known to avoid the warnings of mother nature. People eating rotten eggs and rotten cheese comes to mind. Ewww! Ha ha ha.

And inside you how the big the pods of flesh are. The other picture shows the large, odd shaped pit. You can also easily see from that same picture how creamy it is. The texture is not offensive at all. Just the smell and the taste. I didn’t even dare try to make a recipe out of the flesh. There’s $7.50 I am not getting back.

Some experiments you just regret. Well, not fully. I think that any experiment which causes you to learn something has some value.
