Winter Melon Soup

Is been a while since I last posted. My sister Angela is here so I am really busy taking her around and also lots of catching up to do with her. Here is a simple cold winter melon soup recipe which we really like especially when is eaten cold.

Ingredients :

1 pound of fresh grated winter melon
1 cup of dry longan
a handful of Chinese red dates
2 pandan leaves
Water and sugar

Put all ingredients and water in a pot and bring to boil. Simmer for half and hour and add in sugar. Serve hot or cold.

Note : The amount of water and sugar is up to you. If you like a thick winter melon soup use less water.
