Pst! Are you keeping track of your favourite, king of all fruits’ season? We know! Sadly, durian’s season is ending in some parts of Malaysia but fret not, ’cause you can get your durian all year round from Hernan Foods! Those who love durians must know Hernan Foods as they are extremely well-known for all-things durian – fruits, snacks, desserts, ice creams. You name it, they have it! Of course, that includes mooncakes! Yes, this place makes over 200,000 durian mooncakes daily from scratch.
Here’s How The Musang King Durian Mooncakes Are Made
“Ask all durian lovers in China, Hong Kong, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England or Europe, and you’ll find nothing but remarkable fondness for Hernan.” From the sentence itself, we know why they produce 40,000 to 200,000 durian mooncakes daily. That’s just how much the people love them! Being the curious Foodie we already are, we decided to visit Hernan Food Factory to see how the delicious mooncakes are made.
Of course, everything starts in the cooking room. There is where the mooncake skin and fillings are made. Fresh churned durians flesh are put into a mixture of flour, water, oil and sugar among other things. It is then mixed in a giant mixture for 30 minutes creating thick, sweet and savoury durian fillings. The fillings are then encrusted and moulded with the skin. It could be 1 filling or 2. Did we just say 2? If you are curious, then stay with us.
The moulded mooncake are put in a tray covered with flour and go through a super freezing tunnel of -40*C before the stamping stage. Initially, they used wooden mould but later changed to flower-printed machine stamps. The stamped mooncakes are then packed individually in a container and stored in a room of -21*C before being delivered.
