Fuzzy Melon with Corn in Pork Bones Soup

Submitted by on February 28, 2010 – 1:58 pm2 Comments | 17,296 views

Soup Name:  Fuzzy Melon with Corn in Pork Bones Soup

Traditional Chinese Name: 节瓜玉米豬骨湯 (jié guā yù mǐ zhū gǔ tāng) 
 
Introduction:
A mildly sweet soup that is rich in vitamins and nutrients.  It can be eaten as a meal because of the hearty variety of vegetable assortment and is easy to make. 

What Ingredients are required?

1 pound of fresh pork bones 
2 fresh fuzzy melons
2-3 fresh corn
1 foot of fresh chinese yam
5 dried string figs
2-3 L of water
1 teaspoon of salt (to marinate the pork)

How do I prepare it? 

  1. Pre-marinate the pork bones overnight with the salt (although this step is not necessary)
  2. Boil your soup water
  3. Blanch pork bones in a separate pot of boiling water
  4. Wash, cut and cube fuzzy melon (without skin) and corn 
  5. When the soup water boils, add all the ingredients together
  6. Boil on high for thirty minutes, reduce to a simmer boil for another 1.5 hours
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Any benefits?

  • Helps detoxify the body
  • Neutral soup for any consumption

Any precautions?

  • Consume soup as soon as possible.  Fuzzy melons tend to sour if left out too long.
