Have you heard of these exotic fruits? Longan, also known as Dragon Eye Fruits. Juicy and distinctive textured.
I will explore these fruits for you before I will share the delightful and beautiful Longan Desserts recipe.
DRAGON EYE FRUITS
At first glance, from the outside, the fruit and once we peel it off, it doesn't look like Dragon Eyes. When Longan fruits are taken from the flesh, then it looks like Dragon Eyes.
The seeds in the center of Longan fruits are glossy black and brown like the eyes of a dragon, a mythological creature.
The seeds in the middle are hard and inedible. So when eating Longan fruits, we have to be careful. The slippery texture of the Longan fruit seeds makes them easy to swallow.
Do not let children hold the Longan fruits whole. Remove the seeds first so that they are safe for children to handle and consume.
SAME THINGS WITH RAMBUTAN FRUITS
Longan fruits and rambutan fruits do have similarities in terms of sweet, juicy, and thick flesh skin.
Longan and rambutan trees are almost the same. However, they have different outer shells and shapes. Rambutan fruits are bigger because they have thick outer skins and hair-like textures, not sharp spines. While in Longan fruits, the outer skin is like a shell and a bit sharp.
Here I have documentation of a Longan tree that is bearing fruit. But I don't have documentation until the Longan fruit is ready to harvest.
LONGAN DESSERTS WITH BLUE PEA FLOWERS
Let's talk about Longan desserts. I purposely used Longan fruits in the desert to create an interesting texture.
Meanwhile, to display the beauty in terms of color, I used Blue Pea (Butterfly Pea) Flowers for natural food coloring.
I don't use other colors, because I think blue is the most suitable for the white texture of the Longan fruit. If the color is pink, it will seem to turn off the texture.
I will tell you about the ingredients and how to make Longan Desserts. Stay tuned!
- A Sachet of Agar Powder or about 5-7 grams of Agar Powder
- 500 ml of Blue Pea water, hot or cold or in room temperature condition.
- 300 ml of coconut milk
- 100-200 grams of Longan Fruits, front on how your taste.
- 150 grams of sugar
Longan Desserts are ready to serve! You can add other sauces according to your taste.
Honestly, I had to go to great lengths to keep my nephew from devouring all these desserts before I did the photoshoot!
