First, the fruit is cleaned and the outer skin is removed. The cook then makes a deep cut on the fruit to create a spiral but does not cut the fruit from the seed.

The cut fruit is soaked in a salted solution for an hour so that it will keep its fresh colour when being soaked in sugar.

Then, it is poached in boiling water for 5-10 minutes. The sugar solution is boiled with minced ginger for three to five minutes. It must completely cool off before being poured into the dracontomelon jar. The fruit is then soaked in the sugar solution for 10-15 days.

Some drinks mixed with ice are a wonderfully refreshing drink for Hanoi’s summer heat.
