“I miss durians so much! I can’t believe we have to wait till next year’s durian season to get our durian fix again.”
“Nothing can ever come close to the King of Fruit’s one-of-a-kind taste and aroma.”
Sure, many durian lovers would tell you that there is no other fruit or food that can replace the unique taste, texture and smell of durian. But during the offseason, how can durian lovers satisfy their cravings?
Instead of waiting months for the next durian season to come around, why not find alternatives?
Believe it or not, there are plenty of alternative durian goodies out there. But perhaps the only dish that can match up to the King of Fruit’s extraordinary flavour is none other than Frozen Durian.
Frozen durian? Is there such a thing?
If you haven’t heard of frozen durians before today, then this article will serve as a crucial introduction. Read on to find out more!
What are Frozen Durians?
Frozen durians are, essentially, fresh durians that have been frozen and preserved for long term use.
We cut open fresh durians like Mao Shan Wang and Golden Phoenix, and proceed to vacuum-pack and blast-freeze them in our chillers (that’s right, our frozen durians are made from 100% real durians). Freezing keeps the durians safe for eating by prompting the microbes to go into their dormant state. Furthermore, freezing them curtails the growth of bacteria that might lead to food spoilage.
These frozen durians take about 1 hour to thaw. If you feel like having one, make sure you remove it from the fridge ahead of time.
You could also enjoy them frozen, they taste just like a creamy durian popsicle.
Why You Should Try our Frozen Durians
Are you feeling sceptical?
We don’t blame you. As durian lovers ourselves, nothing beats the bittersweetness of the real durian fruit.
Unfortunately, during the offseason, we can’t enjoy our durian feasts as we did during durian season. So, frozen durians are probably the closest we can get to real durians.
Here are three reasons why you should give frozen durians a try.
1. They are 100% Real Durian
As durian lovers ourselves who appreciate the unique bittersweetness of the durian fruit, nothing is more distasteful than artificial durian flavouring.
Thankfully with frozen durians, you need not worry about encountering artificial flavours because we only use 100% pure and real durians for our frozen selection.
There are no food colouring, artificial flavouring or sweeteners – just pure durian.
2. They Last Longer than Fresh Ones
Fresh durians last around five days before they go bad even if you store them in an air-tight container. Frozen ones, on the other hand, last a lot longer.
You can keep the frozen durians for about two months in the freezer and enjoy the real taste, flavour and texture of durians when you thaw them.
3. They are the Next Best Alternative during Offseason
Like we mentioned earlier, no other dish can compare to durians. Even the flavour of the durian in dishes like durian layered cake and panna cotta is significantly masked by other condiments like sugar, salt and syrups.
Frozen durians might not give you the exact same experience as fresh ones during durian season, but they do satiate our taste buds and satisfy our durian cravings.
Don’t Knock It Till You Try it!
Do you miss durian season? Because we definitely do.
If you must get your durian fix during this offseason, why not give our frozen selection a try? Rest assured that you will not be disappointed but mind-blown by the spectacular flavour of the King of Fruit.
