About 6A Bird Nest & Alaska Red Sea Cucumber Gift Set 


This unusual soup has been a part of Chinese cuisine for generations. Chinese people began consuming bird’s nest soup during the Ming Dynasty and in some tales, it’s believed Zhen He (鄭和), who was a Chinese explorer, diplomat, and fleet admiral, was the first person in Chinese history to eat bird’s nest soup.Sea cucumber has a long history of medicinal value and health benefits since ancient times.
Sea cucumber is a marine mollusk that feeds on the seafloor’s algae and plankton. They are also seen all throughout the world’s oceans. They not only provide delicious food, but also valuable medicine.

How To Use

  1. First rinse off the salt on the sea cucumbers surface and the sand inside its cavity thoroughly. Be gentle: the sea cucumber could fall apart while cooking if its membrane is broken at this stage.
  2. Soak the sea cucumber in clean water for two days, changing water every day. The sea cucumber cant be in contact with any salt or oil until it gets soft. Some of the new available varieties take longer to soften. You can adjust the soaking time based on the situation.
  3. Slowly cook the soaked sea cucumber in boiling water for 20 to 30 minutes. Turn off the heat afterwards, cover and let cool. Cut it open and remove the organs inside. If the sea cucumber still feels hard, repeat the boiling process for two or three times, until it turns completely soft.
  4. Cook the sea cucumber as desired or store it in the freezer once it cools down. In terms of cooking, the lightly flavoured sea cucumber should be paired with something that has a strong taste. Braising with spring onions, dried shrimp roe or abalone sauce is a more manageable option at home.

    How to cook Bird Nest?

    1. Soak the birds nest overnight in cool water.
    2. The nest should be clean of all impurities.If you happen to get birds nest that contains impurities, its best to clean the nest one more time. Bring a pot of water to a boil, and boil the birds nest for 10 minutes, then drain and rinse with cool water.But since this birds nest is so clean, all we needed to do was soak overnight and drain.
    3. Bring a pot with 6 cups of water to a low simmer. Add in the drained birds nest and jujubes.
    4. Keep the heat on low you dont want a hard, rolling boil (which would break the delicate birds nest). Aim for the smallest bubbles possible.

    Cook for 30 minutes 2 hours. The timing really depends on the quality of the birds nest that you have. For Golden Nests products, it only took 30 minutes of cooking to get a gelatinous texture. If you over-cook the birds nest, it will become gummy and break apart, ruining the very expensive delicacy!

    Taste the birds nest it should be soft, gelatinous, slippery-like.

    1. Add in 4 medium chunks of rock sugar. You can turn off the heat and just let the sugar slowly dissolve. Taste and add additional sugar if youd like. The flavor should be delicately sweet.
    2. Serve warm.

Keep in refrigerator and keep in cool
