|Lotus and Dried Fig Soup|
2 Tablespoons lotus seeds
2 Tablespoons lily bulbs
2 Tablespoons goji berries
5 dry longan fruits, without the pits
4 dried figs
1 piece dried tangerine peel
2 Tablespoons chopped brown rock sugar
1. Rinse lotus seeds, lily bulbs, goji berries, longans, and tangerine peel before soaking them in one quart of water for half an hour. Next remove the tangerine peel, cut the figs into small pieces, each about the size of a raison, and do the same for the lily bulb pieces. Also dice the tangerine peel into smaller pieces than the figs, scraping off any pith before doing so.
2. Bring six cups of cold water to the boil, add the lotus seeds, lily bulb pieces, goji berries, longan and dried fig, and tangerine peel pieces. Bring this to the boil, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for one and a half hours.
3. Next add the rock sugar pieces and simmer until the sugar is dissolved. Now divide the fruit evenly and serve in small bowls.
