Durian Puree Cheesecake
Durian (aka King of Fruits) is one of my favorite fruits and can be bought at most Asian supermarkets. This exotic fruit is very aromatic and one must have an acquired taste for it, but it adds a nice touch to cheesecake. I incorporated durian into my usual cheesecake recipe and it came out delicious!
Recipe Summary test
Durian, a large fruit from Southeast Asia, has a dark green to brown husk studded with prickly thorns concealing pale yellow to red flesh. Both the fruit and canned or frozen pureed durian can be found in most Asian supermarkets. Some find durian's strong odor offensive, but the reward is its creamy flesh with a nutty, slightly sweet taste.
