I fell in love with the durian about a year ago. You never forget your first. I brought it home from china town and plopped it on the kitchen table. The next day, our whole house smelled literally like crap, and I hadn’t even opened it yet! I’m pretty sure our house smelled bad for an entire week. Lesson learned. Now when we bring home durians – they sleep outside!
I just made what I call Durian Pudding – quite possibly my favourite food in the entire world. And all it simply is, is durian fruit mixed with a spoonful of raw almond butter!
1 cup durian fruit
2 tbsp raw almond butter
Just throw the ingredients in a bowl and mix it up with a fork! Instant custardy goodness.
Since some people find the smell so offensive, durian isn’t allowed on public transportation in some areas! Hilarious and weird, because I don’t mind the smell anymore – I guess it’s because I know how yummy it is!
It may take you a few tries at eating it before you like it, and no two durian fruit taste the same, so I suggest you give it a few tries. I never knew when I first tried it that I would ever declare it my favourite food ever, so you just never know how you’ll react!

Oh my word that sign is funny as hell, where do you find this stuff??
There are many other signs. Just like the “no guns” signs we found all over NYC.
