[Recipe] Chinese Pear and Longan Dessert Soup

May 22, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

Chinese pear and apricot kernels are traditionally known to be beneficial for respiratory health, and I really like how this recipe requires no added sugar at all.

This recipe is simple to prepare and can even be completed during lunch time when you work from home. I have included both the traditional boiling and pressure cooking timings - but of course if you have a pressure cooker too, just use that. It's much faster. Enjoy!
