Taufu Fa (silken tofu in ginger syrup)

The spiciness of this sweet snack
depends on the age of the ginger and
length of the cooking time – the
older the ginger the stronger the flavour.

about 1cm fresh ginger, pounded
3/4 cup water
1/8 cup dark palm sugar
300g silken tofu

Combine water, ginger and palm sugar –
simmer 10 minutes. The longer the spicier.
Heat tofu in microwave and serve spooned
into large chunks with syrup poured over.
