BEFORE YOU BEGIN – IMPORTANT!!

You may use 900 – 1 kg chicken
You may replace 2 chicken thighs with skinless to reduce fat
Do NOT exceed sugar! It will spoil soup as it is only there to balance your flavours.
Sugar may be replaced with a chinese jubube or a very large date
You may leave the skin on your ginger if you wish for added fiber is what I always do
To speed things up place roughly chopped ginger, onions (excluding green onion), whole chili and garlic cloves into food processor with metal blade on and pulse until finely pureed and use you water to swish every bit of it out into soup.
Allow for a long slow simmer to extract the stock from bones for a lot of the flavour is in the bones which you may remove later.
DO NOT ALLOW ANY LEMON PIPS TO GET INTO SOUP THEY WILL TURN IT BITTER!
If you want to lower cholesterol scoop off the fats to use as chicken schmaltz in other recipes.
Warning! – To those on heart medications! Ginger does interact with some medications, including the anticoagulant drug warfarin and the cardiovascular drug, nifedipine. See “Composition and safety” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginge…

Method:

To a food processor with metal blade on add whole jalapeno, garlic cloves and roughly chopped ginger and onion. Pulse until finely chopped or pureed.

To a wok or pot add all the ingredients together with
a tablespoon salt, excluding sugar and green onions.
Measure 2 liters of water and using part of it to swish out food processor bowl adding
it to pot with just enough water to cover chicken.

Boil for about 20 minutes and then lower the heat to simmer – This will

soften the chicken bones releasing their stock.

bone – You may now adjust the rest of your seasoning to taste.
