Quick notes

Serve along with steamed white rice.

You don’t need the brown sugar for lychees, they are much sweeter, but..

If your can’t find canned lychees

1 cup Pineapple Juice
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/3 cup Light Soy Sauce

and continue with same instructions, but if you’ve never tried lychees definitely look when you get a chance, they are awesome!
