Winter melon Soup

Another cooling soup idea from the vege stall aunty. Perfect soup to clear our body heatiness from the crazy weather nowadays.

Ingredients :

winter melon - skin and seeds removed and cut into small chunks
4 inch long carrot - cut into small chunks
size of a fist of pork loin
a small piece of tai tau choy ( wash in runny water to get rid of the sand and salt )
1.5 litres of water
salt to taste

Method :

Bring water in a small pot to boil and add in pork loin. Continue to boil until all the scums from the pork rise to the surface. Remove pork and wash away all the scums.

In another medium large pot, put cleaned pork loin together with the rest of ingredients except the salt.
Bring to boil and switch to low heat and let it simmer for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Adjust taste with salt. ( Taste the soup first before adding salt because the tai tau choy had already added saltiness to the soup )
Serve hot.
