I found an amazing longan drink recipe that cured my insomnia. It's so simple and delicious that you can make it anytime you feel anxious or stressed out.
There are only three ingredients needed, five cups of water, three and one half ounces (100 grams) of dried longan and salt to taste. I use rock salt but you can substitute sea salt if you prefer.
All you do is bring the water to boil, add the dried fruit and reduce it to a simmer for ten to fifteen minutes until the fruit is soft. Then add salt to taste and serve warm.
Some people prefer to drink it cold and I've heard that others like to strain the fruit and eat it separately, but I like mine hot with chunks of warm fruit all in the same cup.
