This is the first time I’ve ever been to a school, and I’m not sure if I’ve ever been to one. Some friends may not have heard of it, in fact, it’s the prototype we all played as children, is the mucus secreted by the bark of the peach tree. These used to repair wounds by the sun after solidification of the mucus, the formation of amber block hard crystals, is the peach gum. Its main component is galactose, etc., Chinese medicine believes that there is a blood-clearing lipid-lowering, anti-stress and anti-wrinkle, skin effects (source: Chinese medicine).

Peach gum has sufficient water solubility and proper viscosity, soaked in water overnight will swell and become soft, cooked to taste soft and glutinous, and It’s similar to the bird’s nest, which is also known as the “commoner’s nest” (I bought a pound of 30 or so, almost a year old). As for the silver fungus and pear to nourish yin, moisten the lungs, the effect of beauty, we are all familiar with, I will not say more here.
The next step is to take a look at the processing of peach gum and this “peach gum and silver-ear pear custard” method of making it.
The amount of ingredients – the amount that can be made to produce the two bowls in the figure: five or six pieces of peach gelatin, 30 grams of silver fungus, half a pear, 3 spoons of brown sugar, the amount of water.

The practice of peach gum and silver-ear pear soup
Prepare the ingredients. Choose five or six pieces of peach gum, place them in a large bowl, fill with water, and soak overnight ahead of time (un-soaked peach gum is pictured like a clear pebble) (look). Silver fungus can be soaked half an hour in advance.
Tip: don’t be greedy when soaking peach gum, five or six nail-sized bubbles can expand more than ten times the volume, can be made full of! Two bowls (this is the amount after removing impurities and other losses). The container must be large enough to hold enough water to soak through. If the weather is hot, put it in the refrigerator to soak. Don’t soak too much at a time, as the water can easily breed bacteria, so don’t eat it once it spoils.
The peach gum soaked to the hand pinch, soft without a hard core, indicating that the soaking is good. It will be crushed into small pieces, rinsed through a sieve, to remove black impurities.
Tip: peach gum in the mouth, picking and drying process, will inevitably stick to the bark and some impurities in the air, soak before the bad clean up, soak after the tweezers can use the impurities black point clip out, or as I did crush, sieve rinse more convenient.
The processed peach gum, cut silver fungus poured into a small pot, add some water.
Bring to a boil over high heat, then simmer on low for about half an hour.
Tip: Peach gum is not cooked for a long time the better, cooked for too long will not only loss of nutrients, will also be cooked “melt”, the loss of its own Q Bouncy texture. Usually half an hour is enough to boil the peach gum when it is fully soaked.
When the peach gum is cooked to a slightly thicker consistency, weigh out the amount of brown sugar.
Tip: I used brown sugar, but you can also use rock sugar, or rock sugar syrup to flavor the peach gum. Add the sugars in small amounts one at a time to avoid adding too much at once to taste too sweet. To avoid adding too much sugar at one time, add sugar one by one in small amounts to avoid too sweet taste.
Peel the pears, cut them into small pieces, carve the flowers with a mold, and put them into a pot with brown sugar.
Pour the brown sugar into the pot and cook for about 3 minutes, until the sauce is thick and the sugar is dissolved to taste.
Select the method of peach gum: look at the head, peach gum because it is naturally occurring, so there is no rule of size, if the size of the head is very small. Consistent, basically industrial peach gum, or reprocessed; look at the color, a good peach gum against the sun, the color transparent, and the internal Uneven color, there are dark and light, which is normal. If the color is completely uniform, may also be false peach gum; see the foam rate, a good peach gum foam rate can reach more than 10 times, if the Failure to meet this standard, it is likely that the quality is not good peach gum or fake peach gum; smell it, some vendors will be in the peach gum mixed with pine gum. Although the color will be beautiful, there is a pungent odor that can be distinguished by smelling it; comparing prices, the particularly cheap ones are likely to be Is reprocessed or fake.
