Happy Winter Solstice!

Happy Dong Zhi! Here's a recycled post from last year. Did the same thing this year...yeah, the balls burst again.

First, bring the water to boil and throw in some ginger slices:



I bought two packets of them: peanut and red bean fillings, with 10 balls each:

Notice the plastic bag underneath them? Couldn't that be more deragatory enough for its colour? Why? Why all all colours in the world-YELLOW? Royally? NO!

Throw in the frozen balls and bring it to boil from this...



...to this, and add sugar to taste.

Float, float, sticky balls, gently in the pot.

The peanut filling...

Notice the muddy soup? Yeah...a few balls burst...

...and the red bean filling

Mmm...the red bean filling definitely tastes better.
