snow fungus apricot dessert

This is quite like the usual snow fungus dessert, but adding dried apricot gives it a fruity sour taste from the usual red date taste.  Kids will like it chilled.

Ingredients

  1. 10 dried appricots
  2. 10 red dates
  3. 20 grams dried snow fungus or roughly the size of a clenched fist
  4. 1 tablespoon north almonds (北杏)
  5. 1 tablespoon south almonds (南杏)
  6. 10-15 tablespoon sugar (depending on your taste)
  7. 2 litres water

Method

  1. Soak the snow fungus in water for 3 hours or until fully expanded.
  2. Rinse the snow fungus and cut into small pieces and put into a pot with 2l water.
  3. Wash red dates and the almonds and put into the pot.
  4. Bring to boil and lower flame to simmer for 1 hour. 
  5. Add in the dry apricots and simmer for another 1-2 hours.  Adding the apricots earlier together, from the start of cooking in step 3 is ok, except it will be much softer.   (if total cooking time is 2 hours, the snow fungus should be slightly crunchy, 3 hours will be softer).
  6. Add sugar to taste.
  7. Cool it and chill in fridge for a refreshing desserts.
  8. Can be served warm too.
