Evelyn Gan of SilverGlobe Bird Nest sent me a bird nest to be reviewed. Above is bird nest package sent by PosLaju, it takes only 1 day to reach KL from Kuching, Sarawak. There is a recipe on how to cook bird nest attached to the container.

Bird nest drink is a chinese delicacy known for its health and beauty benefits, it is essentially saliva of certain birds which lives in caves, its nests are made of their own saliva.

Raw bird’s nest, above is 2 pcs worth RM130 which weight only about 10g, talk about expensive, but it would still be cheaper than saffron

Put the bird nest into a small bowl

SilverGlobeBirdNest4

pour in luke warm water and let it soak for 1 hour

expanded. Apparently, real bird nest will expand whereas fake ones won’t expand after soaking

Put into a heatproof bowl, i used Pyrex, but chinese ceramic clay bowl are usually used. Above are bird nest, a piece of rock sugar weighing 40g and 400g of water

double boil the bird nest. I put the pyrex bowl into a big stock pot, base it with a metal steaming rack, and fill water halfway up the pyrex

Cooked, after 2 hours. The bird nest is automatically broken up into jelly lookalike. I can’t really get used to the smell though, it smell of albumin or egg white. Upon googling, having a eggy smell means the bird nest have not been chemically bleached, and they called it egg-like FRAGANCE.
