Double Boiled Polygonum And Chicken



Polygonum soup helps to strengthen the body, cure insomnia, dizziness and early grey hair.

Ingredients:

(A)
20 gr polygonum
10 gr sliced dong gui
10 dried longan
10 red dates
1 black chicken

(B)
Salt to taste
2 Tbs Shao Shing Wine

Method:

1. Put (A) in stewing pot. Pour in 1/5 L of hot water.
2. Put stewing pot into a double boiler.
3. Cover and double boil for 3 hrs. Stir in (B) and serve hot.

NOTE: I think it is easier to just use a heat proof bowl inside a steamer than follow the book's method.
