Mom made the perfect fan shue tong shui (sweet potato dessert/soup) in disguise. Love the color!
Sweet Water, obviously…
I miss that… *sigh*
*pretends to open mouth to wait for airplane*
came from mistipurple’s garden, eh? 😉
LOL for once when I looked at the title (but haven’t look at the picture) I was wondering… “har? Ribena soup?!”
Tong shui = sweet dessert soup? >.<
In contrast to most western meals, a Chinese meal does not typically end with a dessert. However, a sweet dish is usually served at the end of a formal dinner or banquet, such as sliced fruits or a sweet soup (糖水, lit. sugar water) which is served warm.

I had the same reaction as DD when first reading the post title. I was like… “Uh? what the hell is ribena soup??!”
I never came across that dish before.
purple soup??!!! make sure u cook one for me in the future… wakaka…
Sweet Misti loaned me her garden to grow some potatoes lately… 😀
gotcha! no, nothing to do with ribena. I liked making fun of people’s cooking (mom included) when it’s not my all-time cuppa 😛
thanks for the info. now we know better. 🙂
its a sweet dessert soup consist of sweet potatoes. mom happen to bought a few in purple to cook hence the ‘ribena’ color 🙂
mea culpa for the misinformation 😦
I cook? you dare to drink or not sinn…
Normally, I will cook the sweet potato with barli.. nicer..
sweet potato dessert? no?
yum.. looks so good!
Should be dessert; since it’s classified under that category. Haven’t had fan shue tong sui for a long time already! I love pak kor fu chuk also!
