Goji berries, aka Chinese Wolfberries, have become popular as a health food. They are rich in antioxidants, particularly eye-protecting carotenoids such as beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. Yummy in porridge, smoothies, trail mixes, teas, tossed in rice and salads. They soften when soaked in water.
In China, dried gojis are often added to rice congee and almond jelly, as well as used in Chinese tonic soups, in combination with chicken or pork, vegetables, and other herbs such as wild yam. The berries are also boiled as an herbal tea, often along with chrysanthemum flowers and/or red jujubes, or particularly with pu-erh tea.
