It's nice to end a day with a bowlful of home cooked sweet potato soup. This brings me to an interesting point, soup. For westerners, soup is often savory and almost never sweet and most definitely not something that a westerner would relate to a type of dessert. However, for Chinese, soup are widely consumed, sometimes as an appetizer and again also for dessert. I personally love soupy desserts as not only do I get to enjoy a dollop of warmness in my esophagus, but I also get to taste the essence and goodness of the ingredients used to boil the soup that has been put before me.
