Snow fungus with ginseng soup



This sweet soup or 'tong sui' of snow fungus, preserved dates, liquorice and ginseng roots  is a saviour these days because of the crazy hot weather.  Not only is this easy to prepare its taste is fabulous too.  A good idea to have a bowl of dessert to cool us down in this sweltering heat and this can be taken both warm or chilled.









Recipe for Snow fungus with  ginseng soup

Ingredients

  • 30 gm dried snow fungus, soaked to soften, stemmed and cut into small pieces
  • 2.1/2 litre water
  • 9 preserved honey dates (mat choe)
  • 20 strands of ginseng roots  (yeong sum soo)
  • 3 pieces of liquorice (kam choe)
  • 60 gm rock sugar
Preparation

Bring water, ginseng roots, liquorice and dates to a boil, about 15 mins.  Then add in the snow fungus, rock sugar, simmer on low heat for about 45 mins.  Fine tune to desired sweetness, turn off heat.  Leave to cool for a while.  Serve warm or chilled.

    1. Yes, do reduce the sugar to your liking. Excess sugar is not good for us.

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.
