Winter Melon + Barley, my mom normally cook this with rock sugar instead of pork ribs. My little picky eater does not like the sweet version, so I customised the savoury version for him. Cook with pork ribs and this is the soup that he likes. :)
Ingredients: (Yield 2-3 servings)
250g Pork Ribs
1 Thick Slice Winter Melon (Peeled, cut into big chunks)
Handful of Barley
1 Dried Fig (US large)
4-5 Seedless Red Dates
2 Dried Scallops
Handful of Wolfberries (optional)
Some salt to taste
