White fungus, dried lotus seeds and dried Chinese dates jujube soup. Instant pot, select slow cooker, 8 hours; or high pressure, 1 hour.

White fungus is also known as snow ear fungus, silver ear fungus and white wood ear. It belongs to the mushroom family.

White fungus has been used as one of Chinese herbs because of its medicinal benefits. It tastes sweet and goes to the lung channel. It is commonly used for healing dry coughs, dry skin, clearing heat in the lungs, nourishing the bodies. Modern study has shown white fungus has anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor benefits. Hence, it can improve our bodies’ immune system.

There is a very popular desert recipe in Chinese culture, called rock sugar and white fungus soup. It can help lung function, moisten skin. Eating white fungus can also help to keep our skin young, it is believed that because of its collagen content. Personally I prefer not to put any sugar.

There are precautions to eat white fungus. If you aversion to cold, cough with a lot of phlegm, or have diarrhea, don’t eat white fungus. If you are not sure, please consult local acupuncturists.
