- 25 Chinese Red Dates; dried ones
- 4 bowls water
- 1 inch ginger; bruised
- 1 bowl rock sugar
Wash dried red dates. Boil water in a pot together with the dates and ginger. Add sugar last.
After 1 hour of boiling (medium heat), use a big metal spoon to mash up the red dates so that the drink is more well–flavoured. Boil for another hour.
There is no need to add more water. The drink is ready when the water level has decreased to about 2 bowls. Best to drink hot or warm is for health benefits. Discard the dates and ginger leftovers.
