Apple Drink


Sister E cooks this for her family very often.  She usually cooks a big pot and they drink it as drinking water.

This is very similar to what I've cooked before, the savoury version (but still sweet), minus the meat.

DD3 kept pointing to the pot and said something I couldn't understand.  After some serious conversation, I finally understood what she said.  She had wanted me to take a picture of her pointing at the pot. 

I cooked this with lesser water as I wanted it to be consumed as a soup instead of a drink.

Apple Drink
Ingredients
2 red delicious/gala apples (don't use China Fuji apples)
2 green apples
30g apricot kernels/chinese almonds (南北杏) *
8 - 10 dried figs (无花果)
1.5 litre water

* I bought the premix pack, if you are mixing on your own, use 2 南杏 : 1 北杏

  
Method
  1. Core apples, cut into wedges.
  2. Rinse chinese almonds and dried figs.
  3. Bring water to boil and add all ingredients. Using medium fire, bring water to boil again, reduce to small flame and simmer for 2 hours. Serve.

I usually add apples to carrots to make juice. Never thought of cooking it to make drink. This looks delicious. Would love to try Thanks very much for sharing.

Your DD3 is so cute! I think she's a creative child...Usually kids would just want their pictures with their faces taken, she wants one of her pointing at the pot instead. :)

Wendy,
Apple for fiber and vitamins C.
Apricot kernels believe to benefit lungs so is a good cough remedy.

Ren,
Thanks!

Meldylocks,
Hahaha! I hope she has inherited her father's genes, not mine. I'm an artistic idiot.
