Delicious! My favorite chinese dessert :P


  1. Soak the azuki beans in water for several hours to soften them (it's easiest to soak them
  2. overnight). Drain.
  3. In a medium saucepan, bring the 5 cups of water with the tangerine peel to a boil.
  4. Turn the heat down, add the adzuki beans and lotus seeds and simmer, partially covered, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until the beans are softened to the point where they are just beginning to break apart.
  5. Add the brown sugar and stir until dissolved.
  6. Taste and add more sugar if desired. Serve hot or cold.
