Noni advice that doesn’t involve juicing? (I got one unexpectedly and it smells horrid)
Anyone have suggestions for what to do with a noni fruit that doesn't involve juicing? I got one unexpectedly and it will be ripe very soon. It smells so incredibly strong (and awful), that I'm worried its flavor will over-power other foods if I add it to soup, curry, or non-cheez dips that have other plants as the main flavor.
One thought I have is to make it into its own cheez dip. I haven't made vegan cheez before, so I'm a bit intimidated by trying to make slices or something cut-able, but a cheez dip seems possible. So, I'm thinking of cutting the noni, removing the seeds, and blending it with pine nuts for a cheez dip.
I'm also thinking of removing the seeds, boiling to concentrate the noni flavor, and then using the water and remaining noni in a salty "fish" soup or stew where the noni flavor is allowed to be strong and over-powering. (Saw a noni salad youtube video where the noni was mixed with fish and other ingredients to make a larb type salad, so that made me think maybe a "fish" soup or stew could work too.)
Does anyone know if I can leave the skin on in either recipe, if I'd need to thicken a blend of noni and pine nuts so I don't get a super liquid-y cheez dip, or what spices might work best with noni particularly in a pine nut cheez dip? Thanks all!
