Old Cucumber Soup 老黄瓜汤

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Old cucumber Soup is the most common soup in the Chinese family especially the Cantonese. Old cucumber is actually a matured cucumber. It is nutritious and healthy, helps to lower heatiness in our body and also good for complexion. I also added the bitter North almond (北杏)and sweet South Almond (南杏). The bitter North almond can exert a certain sedative effect on the respiratory nerve center, and has the effects of relieving cough and relieving asthma. This is an easy and fuss free recipe for this tasty soup.  Just cut the old cucumber with skin intact into chunks (remove the seeds or remain) and blanch the pork ribs in boiling water to remove the scum bits. Rinse the dry ingredients and place everything in the electric pressure cooker and start to cook at the soup button! It takes about 45 minutes to boil the soup in the pressure cooker while on the fire stove, you need to simmer the soup for at least one and the half hour.
