Vegetarian Mutt Cho (Preserved Chinese Dates), Lotus Fruit and Figs Dessert Recipe

This dessert recipe uses Figs (a sweet fruit, Wuhua guo, Ficus Carica) which moisten the lungs and clear excess heat from the body. Meanwhile, Lotus seeds (Lianzi, Nelumbo nucifera) nourish the kidney and spleen. In order to make the dessert more flavourful, I added in some mutt cho (preserved Chinese Dates).

Lotus Seeds (Lianzi), 10 pcs
Chinese Preserved dates (mutt cho) 10 pcs
Figs, 10 pcs
Water, 8 bowls
Rock sugar, to taste

Put all the ingredients in a pot with the water in it as well. Boil for around 1 hour. Add rock sugar to taste. Serve this wonderful dessert hot or chilled.
