Soup Name: Chicken Feet, Snow Fungus and Apple Soup
Traditional Chinese Name: 雞爪雪耳 果湯 (tāng)
Chicken feet are very popular for use as the base meat in Chinese soups. Snow fungus adds a delicious texture and the apples add a sweet tang to the soup. This is a great winter soup.
What Ingredients are required?
How do I prepare it?
Start boiling your water soup
In a separate pot, blanch the chicken feet and strain it removing any dirt and debris from the blanching
Trim the nails and hardened skin from the chicken feet and add them to the boiling water of your soup
Soak the snow fungus (approximately 2 large tennis ball-sized pieces) in cold water for 20 minutes) and cut into smaller pieces
Wash, core, and quarter the apples
Add the apples, snow fungus, dried scallops, and apricot kernels into the soup
Peel the ginger and throw into the soup whole
Boil for at least 60-90 minutes on high heat. The longer you boil it, the tastier the soup!
This soup derives most of its benefits from the snow fungus.
None that I can think of. Enjoy!
