Home Cooking Recipe: Summer melon tea

Notes:

I will not describe the benefits of melon. How can you have less winter melon in summer! ! Come to be a melon tea and add a cool taste to your summer. Absolutely a must-have drink at home! Anyone with a physical condition should be able to drink without worrying about the cold. Because of the addition of brown sugar and dried longan, the melon has a good balance. Brown sugar will not gain weight, nourishing Qi and blood, spleen and warm stomach, promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, and anti-oxidation and detoxification. So I will use a lot of brown sugar to do it. If I don't like the taste of brown sugar, I can change it to a part of rock sugar.

  4. Home Cooking Recipe: Add dried longan and cook together. Boil the fire and simmer for 2 hours (I use the ordinary gas stove, the minimum fire. Cook the melon to make the coffee transparent.) I use a cast iron pot, the sealing and lock water are better, cook two The basic amount of water in the hour is not much less.

  5. What we want is concentrated juice, so there is no need to add water.

  6. The boiled fire should not be too big, as long as it stays in the state of ‘whistling.’ Slow down.

  7. After cooling, filter. Use gauze to unscrew the water from the melon residue and bottle it. Be sure to squeeze as much as possible, and the essence is there.

  8. Take a few spoonfuls of winter melon tea concentrate every time you drink, dilute with boiled water

  9. I like to add a lot of ice to dilute. . Cool and enjoyable! ! quack

Tips:

** The amount of sugar is basically not reduced. This water is diluted to drink, so don't worry about the problem of being too sweet. ** Winter melon itself has no too strong flavor. The taste of pure natural tanning and chemical addition is definitely different. ** After standing for half an hour, the melon can usually produce a lot of water. I don't know what happened to the melon that didn't come out. Is it not fresh enough or how? If there is still no water after heating, add some more. ** No water is added to the raw juice, so the juice is not much. Two kilograms of winter melon come out and a bottle of about 500ml of concentrated juice. ** Of course, you can use half of the rock sugar instead of the brown sugar. Different brands of brown sugar will taste differently. ** I use ordinary gas stoves and cast iron pots to cook slowly with minimum heat. It really took two hours to get angry. Cooked to the winter melon grain is brown and transparent. Because many people say that they cook out, everyone's operation will be different. If you use an induction cooker or a big fire or a different pot, you may have different results. Look at the cooking process a few times, add some water or shorten the time according to your own situation.
