Peach Gum Dessert 桃胶糖水

August 29, 2018 | Recipe by Bake with Paws

My sister gave me some of these “gems” sometime ago and I totally forgot about them till I found it while clearing the fridge. When dry it looks almost like amber. It is said that Peach Gum is good for treating urinary infections and relieving stress while also being good for our complexion as it is high in amino acids. When cooked, it turns into a clear golden jelly that is delicious.
