Buy a whole winter melon and cut off the top, remove the seeds or not depending on your own preference, place the water, dried longan and rock sugar and steam for 3 hours until the winter melon turn soft. Can see the steam?? Hmmmm..I think its done perfectly..Coz my first attempt was a failure..:(
Winter Melon flesh can ease urination, the seed has whitening effect, the skin can be used as facial mask, and thus it is a comfort food to the Chinese. It tastes real good, the flesh is soft as cotton and the longan is sweet.
