We recommend around 3 big jujube dates per portion. This fruit is a delicious treat and much more spongey than the typical variety of Hong Zao.
Jujube dates are red in colour and have a crisp skin with soft, juicy flesh that is delightfully sweet; however, be careful of the stone in the middle!
Alternatively, the dates can be placed in hot water and rehydrated for a juicer fruit. The water can also be drunk for a warming herbal tea.
