peach gum - 桃胶白果红枣羹

Yeah finally today is the last day of term 1 school. Am anxious and excited for tomorrow's meet the teacher session to see how my boy had being coping with his secondary school life.

Tonight we are having all meat dish such as; Pan-fried Mackerel, Pork Chop with Onion, Potato with Meatball and mixed grains with sweet potato.

Oh ya I also prepared a dessert using Peach Gum (桃胶), ginkgo nuts, red dates and longan.

Peach gum 桃胶 is rich in collagen for beautiful skin (wrinkle-free), cleanses blood and clears acne as well as prevent urinary tract infections.

This is how the peach gum looks like. Just take about 8-10 seeds and soak in a big bowl of water overnight (change water a few times) for a day.

The black patches or dirt will fall off when the peach gum expand. So try to pick up those clean one aside.

This is how the soaked peach gum looks like from 10 seeds. Enough to serve 3-4 pax
