My mom loves to make fresh gingko nut sweet dessert soup for the family.She would personally buy the fresh gingko nut and break the nut manually by herself for hours.For me who is lazy would not even dream of cracking and peeling the gingko nut myself.I think this type of task is really time consuming.If I really really want to eat this dessert,I would just buy the ready peeled gingko nut in vacuum pack to save time.If you have no time to cook this delicious dessert soup yourself, hop over to any hawker stall or food court.This famous dessert soup is available everywhere in any hawker stall .
