No meal is complete without soup. I LOVE SOUP~ usually it needs time to be accomplished, but it’s worthy!!! This is a basic winter melon soup with pork spareribs, which results in a delicate stock that lends flavor to the mild winter melon. The soup is meant to be simple and light, but you can always add more soy sauce or freshly ground white pepper to suit your taste.

 Try this winter melon soup.
