Working with durian can leave your hands smelling of durian all day long. Here's a tip I learned from my husband's family, all of whom love durian, but not necessarily the lingering scent. Running hot water through (or in and around) the durian skin creates a very mild lye water which, when combined with soap, helps gets rid of the smell. I tried it and it worked for me!
As for durian recipes, I'm still working on some and will be sure to place the links here once I'm happy with them. So far I haven't found any on the web worth passing on to you. In the meantime, enjoy your fresh durian and all of the many health benefits this unique 'king of fruit' brings!
