Polling day. Psi reading is 111 now on a hot Friday afternoon. It’s been at an unhealthy range & Mrs Eio is sure many people are having some form of respiratory issues these few days. Mrs Eio decided to prepare dessert that will moisten our lungs & strengthen our respiratory & immune system. For sanity & beauty too! Lol.
White fungus lily bulb dessert.
Ingredients are as follows (the photo shows the type of ingredients. Not the quantity.) :
Dried Lily bulbs (1.5 cup) 百合
Melon strips (3/4 cup) 冬瓜条
Wolfberry (3/4 cup) 枸杞子
Dried Lotus seed (1 .5cup)莲子
Dried Longan (1.5 -2 cup)桂圆
Red date (1 cup) 红枣
Gingko nuts (1.5 cup) 白果
Rock sugar 冰糖to taste. (Depending on the amount of longan & red date added. The more longan & red date, one should reduce the Rock sugar.)
3.5 litres of water. (Serving about 15 people )水
Soak the white fungi & remove the “stalk” (the hard & yellowish area before use). Rinse thoroughly. White fungus is high in collagen & well known for their ability to improve respiratory functions. Lily bulb is also beneficial to our respiratory system. Wolfberry- for our eyes… Despite the haze & hot weather, smooth skin & healthier lungs, here we come!!!
Mrs Eio is using her La gourmet magic cooker again. Safe time & energy. Bring the water to boil. Give all the dried ingredients a good rinse before adding them (except the rock sugar) into the pot of boiling water. Boil about 1o-15 min, put the inner metal pot into the magic cooker outer cast to let the ingredients continue to cook for at least 1-2 hours. Add rock sugar to taste before serving.
Eio kids’ drinking the dessert when Psi is 170. Try it out. For our sanity, lungs & beauty!!! Lol.
