Snow Fungus Dessert Soup Recipe

Snow fungus soup is a simple Chinese dessert (tong shui) to make at home. It is often cooked during Chinese New Year and auspicious occasions (I remember having it at my friend’s house on the morning of her wedding). Its sweetness symbolises sweet blessings (甜甜蜜蜜).

This is also a simplified form of our local Cheng Tng dessert (usually Cheng Tng comes with more ingredients such as lily bulbs, sea coconut, sweet potato and barley). Snow fungus is highly nutritious and it has health benefits such as improving blood circulation, and strengthening respiratory system.

Because I cheat (as usual) by using canned ginkgo nuts (where the nuts are already shelled and boiled), the steps and cooking time for this recipe are greatly simplified; it only took me 30 minutes to prepare this dessert.

    I have just bought the white fungus (which is yellow in color) but it has some ants/insects crawling in them – is it spoiled or can I still use them?

      It’s up to you… if there are bugs, I’ll personally discard them. Maybe you can check if the store you bought from can do exchange since you just bought it.

    Hi wiffy, any idea why my soup tastes somewhat sour – I think it is from the red dates.
