Job's Tears Soup

3. Turn to low heat, simmer for 50-60mins.

Drink soup and eat grains. You can add some honey for taste.

Tips: If you soak the Job's tears 2-3 hours in advance,it'll take shorter time to cook it. But I don't think it's necessary if you have enough time.

After boiling, you must turn to low heat, otherwise the water will evaporate very fast.

You can add more water if you want to drink more soup.
