Dry Fig Soup

Soups and Congees

Dry Fig Soup
Ingredients:
4 dried figs, cut into small pieces
6 dried longan, cut into small pieces
1 piece tangerine peels, cut into tiny pieces
1 Tablespoon lotus seeds
1 cup peeled and quartered burdock root
1 lily bulb, each piece of the bulb cut into six pieces
3 Tablespoons goji berries
1 Tablespoon rock sugar
Preparation:
1. Soak figs, longan, and tangerine peel in their own one-half cup of boiling water for five minutes, then drain reserving the water from each of them.
2. Strain the individual soaking waters, and put the fruits in a three- or four-quart pot. Add six cups water, the lotus seeds and the lily bulb pieces and bring to just below the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for one hour.
3. Add goji berries and simmer another ten minutes, then add the rock sugar, and after the sugar dissolves completely, serve the soup in individual soup bowls.
