This is not some Easter Egg type thing made of marzipan. An Edible Bird’s Nest is made a nest made by swiftlets. These swift birds make their nests with saliva. This it is then harvested for consumption and the nest is used in a soup.
This is a popular practice in South East Asian countries and China where this bird is commonly found. It’s supposed to be very good for health and the skin.
The birds diet is also taken into account. The nest comes out in either a white or brown.
But like all things Chinese, this Edible Bird’s Nest has been used for culinary use for over 400 years strong. And they’re still growing in population. So there must be something to it. But will you try it?
