How To Open A Durian

Durians are hard and thorny and if handled the wrong way will cause the addition of many holes in your hands. However what's inside the durian is a heavenly concoction of fragrant and melt-in-your mouth meat. It's not much of a hassle to open up a durian... you just have to use the right tools. Today wAntAn productions teaches you how to open your very own durian without any loss of blood.

Materials needed: Some durians (duh!), a chopper (knives won't do) and a piece of thick cloth (not in the picture). Old newspapers are optional but highly recommended if you don't wish to dirty your floor.

A durian can be easily split if you know where to attack it. Turn your durian to the back and observe the valleys. That's where you want to stick your chopper.

Keep the durian in place with one hand. Ensure you do not touch the durian directly. Use a thick cloth as a barrier. With your other hand take the chopper and repeatedly chop the lines marking the valley. Ensure you apply sufficient force.

Once you're done slicing the durian you can use the chopper to pry it open. Once the gaps are big enough use both hands to pry it open. The durian should split easily now.

The fruits of your success. Congratulations you are now able to open up your own durian. Reward yourself by eating some. Remember to brush, gargle and floss afterwards.

Cheh, my family used to own a durian farm, open durian is just as easy as 1-2-3. !!!

Have not tried durian for quite some times, if I'm not mistaken, should have at least 1 yrs already..

Durian used to be my favourite food, but somehow nowadays, i never think of it at all. May be too bc till no room to think about it..

ok i once had a bet that he cannot open durians without a knife ...

he did it without knives, not even a tiny blade ...

what he did was that he put on his slippers or anything to cover up your foot, then stand on it, then u can the durian open up easily ...

my first time
