Ingredients:  
9 oz (250 g) haws (hawthorn fruits, or use fresh crab apples)
9 oz (250 g) fresh chestnuts (or use canned peeled whole chestnuts)
9 oz (250 g) canned ginkgo nuts
2 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp (25 g) sugar
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp osmanthus flower syrup (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Wash the haws and simmer in water until partially cooked. Drain, then core, peel, and wash the haws. If using fresh chestnuts, wash them and cut a cross through their pointed ends and a third of the way down the nuts. Plunge into boiling water for 1 minutes, remove, drain, and shell. Then let them soak in warm water for about 30 minutes and remove the inner peels.


Put the chestnuts in a heat-proof bowl. Cover with water and steam for 20 minutes, or until soft.


Pour 1 1/4 tbsp of the sesame oil into a wok and heat. Add the sugar and cook, stirring constantly, until the syrup turns light brown. Slowly add 9 oz (250 ml) water, the honey, haws, chestnuts, and ginkgo nuts. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to low and simmer until the syrup thickens. Stir in the osmanthus flower syrup and the remaining 1 1/4 tbsp sesame oil, and serve.
