This was wonderful! A friend of my came back from China and showed me pictures of this interesting dessert she tried while there. I was very curious about it and was so happy when I found this recipe. I made it several times and found that letting it sit for just a minute or two worked best for me. Any longer and the whey started to separate. It’s a soft custard with a fairly strong ginger taste and a bit of sweetness . The ginger made my mouth and throat nice and warm. I made it for several friends and they really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It was a lot of fun trying something new! I will definitely be making it many times over.

It didn't set up for me. I ended up with sweet ginger flavored milk. I added some cornstarch and tried to thicken it that way and that barely set up either. I don't know what went wrong. Read More
