Today I felt like soup, having another of my moments so soup it was. And this time I wanted it done in the slow cooker which I bought last year I think, and only used it once. In fact for a while I could not find the cooker at all, as my wonderful maid Eda left the box somewhere else. So today I found it. I really did not know what I wanted so I checked the fridge and found a lots of odds and ends, thanks to Yustina’s method of storing. So here is what I found.
Barley Pearls 1/2 cup or a little more – to be soaked
Ginger 3 slices
Garlic 4 cloves
Onion 1 to be quartered
Carrot 1 small – to be sliced
Dried Chinese Mushrooms 6 or 7 to be soaked and stem removed
Celery 1 stick – sliced Chinese Cabbage a few leaves Water 2 or 3 cups Peanuts 2 tbsp
Salt and pepper to taste
3. Boil on high.
4. I am still boiling it now it is 10 hours and still the peanuts are a little hard.
5. So lets see how it will be 12 or 14 hours time.
6. Flavor to taste.
I am giving part of the soup away to a friend who has the cough for a few weeks now, hopefully it will help him.
