Ingredients (Serves 2)
1 piece of Birds Nest
3-4 pieces of Rock Sugar

American Ginseng (2 slices-Optional)
1) Soak the birds nest for at least 2 hours or up to overnight until soften.

Very good quality birds nest will have less of this feathers. Change the soaking water twice during the entire soaking process.
2) Drain the water.
