2 pieces rock sugar
2 cups apple, Chinese apple-pear, longans and other fruits, as desired
1 small finger of a Buddha's hand, minced fine

3. Put the sugar in a small bag and crush it with the back end of the cleaver until the chunks are very small.
4. Dice the fruits into one to two inch cubes and put them and all other ingredients into a heat-proof serving bowl. Mix them well.
