Shark's Fin Melon with Cordyceps Militaris

One of my son's favourite soup is Shark's Fin Melon Soup and my daughter's orange soup, Cordyceps Militaris Chicken Soup.

Here, I combine both their favourites. Cordyceps Militaris makes the soup extra fragrant and sweet. This is one of the few soups that they both like. Usually, when one of them like a certain soup, chances are, the other one hates it. =_=|||

You probably know what I'm going to say next. "I have weird kids." :P

  • 500g Shark's Fin Melon, skin and seeds removed and cut into smaller pieces
  • 250g Pork Ribs
  • 1.5 ltr Water
  • 15g Cordyceps Militaris 虫草花
  • 2 tablespoon Wolfberries 枸杞子
  • 8 Dried Seedless Red Dates 红枣
  • Salt to taste

    How to do it:
    1. Blanch pork ribs.
    2. Place blanched pork ribs in a fresh pot of water.
    3. Put all ingredients, except wolfberries and salt in a pot.
    4. Bring to a boil before reducing to a simmer.
    5. Simmer for 3-4 hours.
    6. Add wolfberries during the last hour before end of cooking
    7. Add salt to taste.
