Snow fungus is known for building up your immune system, preventing cold, curing dry cough and a smoother skin. When I read an article online that said snow fungus has the same anti-aging benefit as eating Bird’s nest soup, I decided to drink a couple more bowls in this long and dry winter!!
Ingredients: (for one stew pot)
- 1/3 papaya
- 1.5 pieces of snow fungus
- 2 tablespoon of Sweet and Bitter Apricot Kernels
- 4 red dates
- 1 tablespoon of rock sugar or honey (optional)
Soak snow fungus in warm water for 1 hr. Clean and remove the stem (the hardest part in the middle of the snow fungus). Soak red dates for 30 minutes. Clean and remove the seed using a scissor. Place all ingredients in the mini stew pot. Fill up the mini pot with water up to 90% full. Then place the mini pot into a big pot with water. Bring it to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 1.5 hour.
