 Snow Pear and Dragon's Eye Sweet Dessert Soup

Snow Pear and Dragon’s Eye Sweet Dessert Soup

One day, in the thick of a winter evening, when all the children lay sleeping, I suddenly had this urge for something sweet, crunchy and hot.  No panic.  Taking a peek in the fridge, I found one giant snow pear staring at me. Perfect.  This is how simple this dessert soup is and a majority of the other ingredients are primarily pantry items with a billion years shelf-life.  I personally love food with layers of texture and flavour and after twenty minutes, I was in bliss.

To see the full recipe, scroll down to skip my commentary.

The ingredients for the soup are: 1 large snow pear (preferably the sweeter kind with a thick, orange-brown skin), some dried longans (or dragon eyes), dried wolfberries, and rock sugar (adjusted to exactly the way you want).

The great thing about these massive Korean snow pears is that they produce a lot of fruit flesh.

The next thing to do is to throw everything in a pot of boiling water.  You should hear the rock sugar crinkling as it dissolves – rather neat. I made enough so that my husband and I could enjoy about 3 rice bowls each.

Don't be shy - make more!

Boil on high heat for 15 minutes (or to the desired crunchiness of your snow pears) and adjust the sweetness as well. I prefer it less sweet, but depends on your sweet tooth.

Serve piping hot and enjoy!
