White (Snow) Fungus with Rock Sugar Dessert Soup (冰糖雪耳糖水)

“Easy-making of Premium White Fungus (or known as Snow Fungus), Lotus Seeds, Red Dates and Candied Winter Melon Strips with Rock Sugar Dessert Soup.”

This is the best dessert soup I ever tasted. I love it! However, it is quite expensive to buy from outside stores. I know a regular bowl of premium white fungus with rock sugar dessert soup costs $3 – $5. Moreover, those ‘commercial’ desserts are normally way too sweet for the palate.

Hence, I decided to cook it at home whenever I feel like having some. I can adjust the sweetness to my liking as well as adding my preference of ingredients which complement the white fungus dessert. read more

I liked sweet potatoes, of all ways. Baked, boiled, steamed, soup, and even fried. And all colors of it as well. So, I had to have varieties in my sweet potato soup.
