Wedang Jahe Lengkeng - Longan in Ginger Syrup

Somehow longan is heavily connected with festive seasons in Indonesia. Now that Idul Fitri is upon us, longan (fresh and in can) is sold everywhere. And I swear it is not just for Idul Fitri, come Christmas and Chinese New Year, you can bet these will also be everywhere. I saw so many cans of these piled high in the supermarket, and this is what leads to today’s post: longan in ginger syrup.
