Sweetened winter melon, also known as candied winter melon, is a popular dessert and snack in Asian cuisine, particularly in Chinese and Southeast Asian cultures. It is made from winter melon, also known as wax gourd, which has a light green, waxy exterior and a pale, sweet flesh.

Fresh winter melon is peeled, seeded, and cut into small cubes. The cubes are then boiled in a sugar syrup until they are soft and translucent. The syrup is often flavored with ingredients such as ginger, cinnamon, or pandan leaves to add extra depth of flavor.

Sweetened winter melon is typically served on its own or made into other dishes. It is enjoyed for its delicate sweetness, jelly-like texture, and refreshing flavor. Boil pieces of sweetened winter melon in water to make a delicious infusion that can serve as the basis of a soup or drink.
