Papaya with white fungus and goji berries

There are times when we buy fruits and when cut opened to find that they are not quiet ripen to eat yet. This was the case with our papaya, instead of throwing it away. We turn it into a dessert with just a few other ingredients we have in the pantry and fridge. This is a refreshingly delicious dessert that is really simple and quick to whip up. In addition, we toss in some jelly we made earlier. The contrast between the crunchy white fungus and soft jelly was wonderful. Without a doubt, everyone in our house agreed that we should make again.


1 Papaya, cut into bit size pieces
1 handful dried white fungus
1/2 cup goji berries
1 cup sugar
1 slice of ginger, optional
1 ltr water
jelly (optional)


1. Soak the white fungus with goji berries in hot water for 30 mins and tear fungus into bite size pieces.
3. Bring 1 liter of water to boil and reduce to simmer.
4. Combine all the ingredients together and simmer for 5 mins. Remove from heat and let it cool.
5. Refrigerate overnight
6. Serve chilled


  1. The picture is soooo tempting - what beautiful work! I have never looked for white fungus and without a Whole Foods near me, I suspect it will be hard to come by. As will goji berries. But I'm so jealous you were able to make this :)

  2. Thank you for your praise. Dried white fungus and goji berries are pretty common in Asian grocery stores. Hope you can get a hold of them and give it a try. Cheers :)

  3. My mum told me about Goji berries after watching a TV program on their benefits. I live and work in China and bought some yesterday...I'm looking forward to enjoying the many positive benefits associated with Goji berries, especially the extra energy...Thanks
