Preserved wax gourd brick

OMG! Really good stuff. I need to buy more. The brick will do close to 1 gallon.

Should one take advice from "Catbert"? Hmmmm.

Wally is my hero!

Thanks. I figured that's what I needed to do. Matter of how much, how long. Hey it's cheap, trial and error will work.

Preserved wax gourd brick

So what is this? It's about 2x2.5 inches square brown and hard as a rock.
I got it thinking I could use it to make some winter melon tea. But I haven't been able to figure out exactly what I have and how to use it.

Google just gives my links to preserve a gourd after you clean it out. Or places to buy tea. Even the web site for the company does not list the product.

Ingredients sugar-wax gourd. I did find a reference to winter melon brown sugar candy, but this is hard as a brick.

Has anyone used this stuff?
