As far as I am concerned, I'm not a big fan of bird's nest only because I am allergic to it. They are complex protein after all. It's been YEARS since I had them after a bad allergic reaction from having consumed them last. However, I read somewhere that cave nests are more pure with less allergic reactions as compared to home cultivated ones.
My post today is to document the day I have decided to give cave bird's nest another try.
4) And then I add about 2 bowls of water into the slow cooker, some rock sugar and boil the nests for 4 hours (on high)
5) Tada! Let cool, fill into glass jars and refrigerate. I had a small bowl of warm serving that night itself and waited for an allergic reaction. Ha!
But it was all good and I had a jar every night for the next 3 nights. Looks like I can consume cave nests after all! What a yay to end 2016 with!
