Apple, Apricot Kernels & Snow Fungus Tea

Let's have some homemade cooling tea to beat this warm weather! Serve this to kids rather than unhealthy packed fruit juice, which I rarely give my kids :) Homemade fruit juice? I rarely made this too as all the fibre are being separated after processed, basically drinking 'sugar' >0< So plain water is the best! hahaha 

Recipe source :  Food & Travel Sept 2005

  • 2 large red apples
  • 2 large green apples
  • 30gm dried snow fungus
  • 6 seedless red dates
  • 100gm sweet apricot kernels 南杏
  • 50gm bitter apricot kernels 北杏
  • rock sugar to taste

  1. Wash and core the apples, cut into chunks.
  2. Rinse the snow fungus and cut off the hard base. Tear the fungus into pieces.
  3. Place all ingredients, except sugar, in a large pot filled with 3L water.
  4. Bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 1 hour until the snow fungus is almost jelly like.
  5. Add sugar to taste. Serve warm or chilled.
