Home cooked winter melon soup

Nothing beats home cooked food, especially charcoal boiled soups. One of my favourites is the winter melon soup. Cooked with pork ribs, dates, wolf berries, and dried baby scallops, (aka conpoys) the soup tastes delicious after a few hours of slow simmering over the charcoal fire.

This soup often completes a meal by itself, since there are both meats (pork and scallop), and vegetables in it. A whole bowl of soup is quite substantial actually, especially when one adds in a bowl of rice. In cool rainy days, i.e. this few days, this soup is particularly satisfying.
