Aunty Veronica Ting was the pastor of my church during my early teens. We lived near each other and she is a dear family friend. During the last few months of her attachment here, she was down with Athritis, and she'd request that I prepare certain foods for her, nothing malu-malu(to be shy of), cos she treats us like real close friends. Now she's posted back to where she came from, KL Wesley, looking better and healthier than ever before. God bless u, Aunty Veron.
Before she had that joint pain, she often dines at our place, uninvited (there's no need to invite once it's like family) and once she brought us this wonderful soup, never eaten before….. It’s apple soup. Huh? Apples can be made into soup? Yup… she did, and she taught me how to do it. I doubled up her recipe here.
1 Chicken breast, skinless, bones on (abt 500-600gms, skinless weight)
4 red apples (abt 600gm in total), peeled, halved, cored. I used Washington Cameos.
¾ tsp salt for seasoning.
That’s just it.
Bring the water to a boil and put in chicken breast and apples. Simmer on low heat for 2 to 2.5 hours. Season with salt.
