Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

White Fungus Dessert

Tasted this dessert long time ago at a pot luck gathering of my line dancing group.   Loved it instantly.    So here is the estimated recipe.


1  1/2 whole white fungus (suet yee) -  soak in water for a few hours.  Cut away the hard bottom part.
Gingko nuts (bak kor) - about 15 
1.5 - 2  litres of water
rock sugar or sugar to taste
pandan leaves (optional but they give the dessert a very fragrant smell)


1)        Put the white part of the white fungus into a blender.  Press the blender button just 
           to cut them into smaller pieces.
2)       Crack the gingko nuts and peel the skin.  The easy way to peel the skin is to soak the nuts in
          water and the skin will come off easily.  Cut the gingko nut to remove the centre filament which
          is bitter.
3)       Put the white fungus, gingko nuts, pandan leaves and the water into a pot and boil for at least
          1  hour.   Last add in rock sugar to taste.  Enjoy!
