Bird's Nest Soup

Few years ago, I had received this forwarded email saying that we might be eating bleached bird's nest. It is definitely not very smart to pay for bird's nest that comes with extra chemicals. Therefore, I had stopped eating bird's nest.

Recently, one of my friend has started the bird's nest business. She is selling the processed house bird's nest with no addictive or bleaching. Since now I can get it from a reliable source, I decided to give it a try.


Nest piece before cooked


First, soak the bird's nest with warm water for half an hour. Then simmer the bird's nest with water in a ceramic pot for one and a half hour. Add rock sugar to taste. Take it right before sleep with empty stomach to get the best result.

Yummy..Looks like a big piece of bird nest for one bowl. Can your body digest all the goodness in one night =) ?

3-5g is the suggested one time amount. One piece is abt 7g and that is good enough for 2 bowls.

i've been drinking bird nest soup every night (i only get the homemade kind back at home). the only reason why i drink it is because it's supposed to be good for complexion.

i’ve been taking the store-bought kind online (e.g. www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm of famous branded only of course) which is directly mailed from Hong Kong. this would be at a more affordable price.

Thanks for dropping by, Katherine. You are so lucky that you can have it every night. So any effect that you notice? I dun drink bird nest that often, lazy to prepare. :P
