    Durian Fruit

    So has anyone tried this?

    My wife and I came across it at the Asian Market today. She said she wouldn't try it because she knows it smells like old trash. Plus the actual fruit you eat is the texture of custard.

    We did buy some Kimchi that smells and looks good.

    I've never tried it but it has a huge following in Asia.

    Have a look at this............

    I have walked past a durian stand in Singapore and I can offer only one piece of advice...

    Anthony Bourdain loves those things. They ban them on public transportation in Singapore.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Been there - done that - and my advice is: "Don't go there and don't do it."
    You're not missing out on anything and there is no "life adventure" in eating anything that is strongly reminiscent of vomit.

    They are....well unique. Not the worst thing I've tried, that'd have to go to the Ghost Pepper I tried but they certainly aren't something I'd want to eat again. The smell and texture are the worst part, but there's nothing all that great about the flavor. I don't get the appeal.

    Bhut Jolokia the "Ghost" pepper. I'm going to try and grow them next year. They are hard to grow because it takes up to 300 days to harvest. I'll have to make a setup indoors for them most of the year.

    I haven't had Haggis but I do like head cheese.

    My sister in law loves them. She's Vietnamese and grew up with eating durian. It's an acquired taste. I can't get near the things. They can clear a room.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    The wife and kids are always cruising the G store for new "trendy" crap to try. I'm tellin' them to stay away from this stuff like the plague

    VOMIT? Ahh
