Bird Nest Soup in China
Supposedly, it’s suppose to keep you beautiful. And supposedly helps keep your body “cooled,” part of the whole yin yang balance.
Also, it is supposed to be very expensive, but mostly because, just like abalone, the workers who retrieve these nests have to climb high in the caves to remove it. The nest is basically made out of spit, bird spit. The bird is a East Asian Swift bird that makes its nest in caves (now, you can find them building nests in artificial caves like towers) and they lay their eggs, and once the baby birds are ready to leave the nest, the workers remove it until the next season.
These workers have done a good job on sustaining the ecosystem. The birds are not extinct, and many of these caves/towers are family owned so they keep a lot of the incoming birds safe. The nests have to be removed anyways because the birds don’t use the nest more than once. They also do a thorough cleaning on these nests to make sure it’s safe to eat.
But anyways, this soup is made out of bird spit. It’s sweet and tasty. And, if you happen to bump into it one day, take the opportunity to taste it.
