I wrote earlier that I am clearing “stock” at home and I found this packet of Corn Frills aka Corn Whiskers.
In the packet front, its writes in Chinese
玉米须 (Corn Frills)
Effect: good for water retention, Urine issues. To reduce water retention, use Red Beans 30g, Corn Frills 15g and add water 2000c, bring to boil and continue with small fire for 45 minutes and drink as water, or can boil as soup. In recent, this is use for high blood pressure, diabetics, heat and stone.
I tried this soup, and its taste like Corn Soup. I uses some lean pork, soya beans, dried carrot and the corn frills (adding also red and black dates) and boil for few hours (using charcoal).
The soup turn out to be very sweet and nice.. very “ching” also.. clear soup.
