To eat? Or not to eat?
To love or not to love?
Durian is indeed, a love/hate relationship for everyone.
You either, love it, or hate it.
There is no in-between. Like it or not, indirectly or directly, or howsoever, you might need to deal with durian someday.
Let me show you, how to open a durian with success without injuring yourself.
First prepare yourself some hand towel and a screwdriver.
These are the durians purchased by Mr Soprano.
First, find the bottom of the durian.
Position the screwdriver on the bottom of the durian.
|Poke the bottom of the durian with the screwdriver.|
|Pry the durian open with the screwdriver. However, I advise you to NOT use bare hand to hold the durian. This is done by a professional. Unless you consider yourself one, you can do it sans towel.|
|With both hands, insert both thumbs in the cavity, and forcefully but slowly pull it apart. Again, use a hand towel to do so.|
|Further pry open all the sides, to ensure no hidden durian in the rubbish bin later.|
|Employ a durian connoisseur to try out the durian. Mine is Mr Soprano.|
Have a blast with durians this durian season!
