Papaya and Corn with Yam in Pork Broth
Soup Name: Papaya and Corn with Yams in Pork Broth
A mild soup that is great for children and ideal for confinement. With a few simple ingredients that are readily available, you can whip up this soup in no time. It takes minimal prep time and is very sweet to taste and the contents are edible. I make this soup quite often because the children love it and it’s high in Vitamin C.
How do I prepare it?
Pre-marinate the pork overnight with the salt (although this step is not necessary)
Blanch pork bones in a separate pot of boiling water
Boil your soup water
Peel, wash and chop papaya & corn into large chunks
Peel, wash and chop chinese yam into large chunks (wear gloves when handling fresh chinese yam as it will cause your fingers to itch)
- Once water is boiling, add all the ingredients together
- Boil on high for 30 minutes. Reduce to simmering for 2 hours (or use internal pot).
- Serve and enjoy!
Neutral soup that is ideal for children and toddlers
Especially ideal for confinement as the chinese yam helps with reduction of uterus and post birth
High in vitamin C and fibers (if you eat the papaya and corn)
- Fresh yams will cause your fingers and hands to itch if handled directly (ie: direct contact). Use gloves when washing, peeling and chopping.
