Cranberry Beans & Peanut Soup 珍珠豆花生汤

Lately, I have been doing spring cleaning whenever I have time.  Not that I have much time but there is noone else to do it if I didn't do it. I'm trying to stay away from the computer to get more things done because my computer chair seems to some invisible glue on it.  Once I sit on it, I'm stuck. :P

So, here's a quick post on another soup that my family love. Best of all, it's easy to prepare.

  • 1.8 litre Water
  • 250g Pork Ribs
  • 150g Cranberry Beans (Zhen Zhu Dou) 珍珠豆
  • 120g Raw Peanut
  • 6 Red Dates (Hong Zao) 红枣
  • A handful Wolfberries (Gou Qi Zi) 枸杞子
  • Salt to taste

How to do it:
  1. Blanch ribs.
  2. Put all ingredients excluding salt in a pot of water.
  3. Bring to a boil and reduce a simmer.
  4. Remove any scum that surface.
  5. Simmer for 2 hours.
  6. Add salt to taste.
  7. Serve.
