Birdnest has been a fine tonic like abalone since ancient times. Edible bird nest sounds like a magical elixir with reliable traditionalists championing the consumption of bird nest soups with many benefits.
In this century, however, we are fortunate enough to be able to buy the beneficial bird’s nests at a common price and every family has the opportunity to consume it.
Guess what? By reading this blog you already stand a chance to win the GIVEAWAY bird nest!
We all knows that bird nest is beneficial to our health. But when it comes to the preparation process…
- First, soak the bird’s nest overnight in cool water
- The nest should be clean of all impurities
- If the bird’s nest still contains impurities, it’s best to clean the nest one more time
- Bring a pot of water to a boil, and boil the bird’s nest for 10 minutes, then drain and rinse with cool water
- If the bird nest is clean to serve, then soak it overnight and drain
- Then, bring a pot with 6 cups of water to a low simmer. Add in the drained bird’s nest and jujubes
- Last but not least, keep the heat on low – because boiling would break the delicate bird’s nest. Aim for the smallest bubbles possible
- Lastly, cook for 30 minutes – 2 hours
OKAY, THAT’S TOO MUCH FOR ME…
