Apple Soup 苹果汤



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.
2L water.
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.

  2. Glad u enjoyed the mango jelly and the orange yogurt cake. :)

    There are high range, mid range and budget hotels, seaside and city hotels. I'm not sure which type are u looking for in Penang.
    If u're looking for a beach resort, Rasa Sayang Resort should be good, as it is under Shangrila's group. Price range is about, if i'm not mistaken, more than RM650/night. If city stay, I've been to Quality Hotel suites, room is big and spacious, with a nice jacuzzi. Price is abt RM300/night. I rarely stay for the night in Penang, so I don't really know that much. Sorry:)

    The taste might be different, but I can't see why not. :)

  7. Hi Wendy
    Just dropping by to tell you how much I like this recipe, believe it or not, I have made it > 10 times! It is easy to remember the recipe, just 2 red apples, 2 drumsticks, 1 L of water, then boil and simmer for 1.5 to 2 hours. I like to add 1 or 2 dried scallops, or a few red dates, or 1 tbsp of goji berries just to enhance the flavour of the soup.

    Thank you once again!

    cheers
    Miss B @ EEWIF
