Description

A cooling brothy soup to feel clean and fresh from the inside.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Water, Plus 2 Cups For Blanching Pork Shoulder If Needed
  • ½ pounds Pork Shoulder Bones
  • 1 whole Old Cucumber, Deseeded And Cut Into 1-inch Slices
  • 1 bulb Garlic, Peeled
  • 2 Tablespoons Dried Oysters
  • 2 Tablespoons Goji Berries (Kei Chi)
  • 4 whole Red Dates (jujubes)
  • 4 pieces Solomon’s Seal (Yuk Chuk)
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt

Preparation

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Place pork shoulder bone pieces into hot water and let them sit for 15 minutes. Drain and use.

Place all the ingredients (including 6 cups water) in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer for 1 hour.

Note: If you are using a crockpot like me, bring the 6 cups water to a boil on the stove first. Pour water into the crockpot over all the other ingredients. Boil on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.

Serve!
