Tonight will be my Turtle Soup and here's why.
Turtle soup is highly recommended by Traditional Chinese Medicine as the best possible medicine to revive failing kidneys. The kidneys control every
organ in the body, especially the heart and the pancreas. Weak kidneys can cause high blood pressure, rapid heart rate, and Type II diabetes. When
your kidneys are completely failing, you have two choices: turtle soup or a kidney transplant.
Now I will not use many Spices, so, I'll have a variety of Spice's on it table for your own pleasure.
Now, as for drinks, turtle soup is best with a Dark Bark Tea or Beer or Rice Wine.
Of-Course Water also.
You should also know it takes two days to make Turtle Soup and it is Ready Now!
Oh, Turtle soup also has Chicken with it and a Chicken broth.
I'll attach how it was made.
To make turtle soup, you will need a huge stainless steel pot, big enough to hold a ceramic pot placed inside it.
All the ingredients for the soup, including a live turtle may be bought at some super markets or Asians Markets, In Arizona, I have to Order my
Turtles from California.
The clerk at the market will chop the live turtle into pieces with a huge cleaver, and then package it up.
It will take a minimum of two days to prepare and cook the soup.
First, you start by making a broth from a whole chicken and some Chinese herbs.
You will need a third pot for the broth.
The chicken and the herbs must cook for a minimum of 8 hours. Then you put the turtle, shell and all, inside the ceramic pot and cover the turtle
with the chicken broth.
Place the ceramic pot, filled with the turtle and the broth, inside the stainless steel pot and fill the stainless steel pot up to within one inch of
the top of the ceramic pot. The turtle soup must cook for a minimum of 12 hours, but longer cooking is better.
After a few hours of cooking, you can remove the ceramic pot and place the turtle soup inside your refrigerator, then continue cooking it the next
day, if you do not want to stay up all night watching the soup.
This is What I did for you all my friends.
So, Very Tender and Fresh and Healthy.
The actual Process and ingredients. Well,,,, some of my Secrets!!!!!
Make a broth from these ingredients:
1. One ounce Dioscorea (Shen Yao)
2. One and a half ounces Radix Astragali (Huang Qi)
3. One and a half ounces Codonopsis Pilosula (Dang Shen)
4. One half ounce Medlar (Qi Zhi)
5. 8 dried Chinese dates
6. One whole chicken with feet removed. Include the liver, heart, gizzard and neck in the broth.
When the broth is done, remove the chicken meat and the bones, but not the herbs.
Put the chopped up turtle (including the shell) into the ceramic pot and fill the pot, up to one inch from the top, with the chicken broth.
Place a towel or some chop sticks on the bottom of the stainless steel pot so that the ceramic pot does not touch the bottom of the stainless steel
Pour water into the stainless steel pot, and allow the soup to simmer inside the ceramic pot for 12 hours at least. Do not allow the water in the
stainless steel pot to get into the ceramic pot, which has a small hole in the lid. Cover the stainless steel pot with a tight-fitting lid and allow
the soup to simmer for up to 7 days.
Yes, you can Simmer up to Seven Days and drink the Broth for your Health!!! Now Read the Health Properties I list for you.
To serve the soup, remove the pieces of turtle shell. You may also remove the turtle meat. You do not have to eat the turtle meat, as all of the
medicinal properties will be in the broth. The amount of broth that you are required to drink depends on how much you boil it down. Normally, about
12 ounces of broth will be enough to have a good effect on your kidneys.
Turtle soup can be eaten once a month until your kidneys recover. For people who don’t have weak kidneys, the soup can be eaten once a year to
maintain good health.
How will you know if your kidneys have improved, after you have eaten the soup? A TCM doctor can tell you how well your kidneys are working. When
your kidneys are working the way they should, you will have not have to get up at night to go to the bathroom, and you will have no tell-tale symptoms
of failing kidneys, like dry mouth. You will have renewed energy and your blood pressure, and blood sugar, will be normal.
