Check out the video for what ingredients I used for my basic Chinese soup pantry ingredients. I keep these stocked all year round and constantly filled because that’s how useful they are! You’ll find at least 2 or 3 of these in each of my basic soup recipes! You can buy these at your local Chinese supermarkets or herbal shops.
Thanks for sharing. All your recipes remind me of my mums cooking which I’ll definitely be trying out!
My mother recently passed away and I have been missing her soups which she prepared regularly when we were growing up. I regret I did not learn her recipes so I was very excited to have found your website and I love your videos. They are simple but so informative. Really love them. I do have some questions. #1. How long can I keep the herbs if they are refrigerated? #2. How do you know whether the herbs are organic? #3. I have seen dried yams that are white as chalk and other yams slightly more beige in color with a little brown on the edges. Is one better than the other? #4. Is there a soup recipe you would recommend for toddlers to maintain their overall health? I look forward to your answers. Thanks so much.
Can you provide the link to Chinese ingredients,:packaging and descriptions?
I stumbled across it in the past and it has helped me locate items. Did you move it or replace it? It was a wonderful reference page. Thank you!
