Ginkgo Barley (Fu Chok)

   

Ginkgo Barley Recipe
Ginkgo Barley (白果薏米腐竹糖水) is one of my favourite Chinese desserts of all time. Also known as fu chok (foo chuk), this dessert tastes light, refreshing and nourishing. It is also really easy to make. Be sure to buy the soft type of bean curd skin sheets to make this dessert. The other type, which looks alike but is harder and oilier, is more suitable for making Chinese style meat stews (I found out the hard way because I use the wrong type on my first attempt of making the dessert). I cheat by using canned ginkgo nuts (where the nuts are already shelled and boiled), so the steps and cooking time for this recipe are greatly simplified.

    I don’t like ginkgo, so my favorite type is with fuchuk, egg and rock sugar.

    Ages since I had this. My mum used to make this when we were young. Unfortunately don’t have the chance now other than eating it outside (my other half doesn’t really like this). I take mine either hot or cold and they say that this is good for your complexion …

    This dessert reminds me of 1 small “incident” with my mother-in-law. Let me try your recipe and share my story in my blog. ;)

    This does look very refreshing. My mom is always telling me these nuts are good for me, but her talks have never been as persuasive as this post.

      I also heard that the nuts are good for brain power, though it doesn’t have much effect on me in that area :p
