3 C's Soup

Sokehah Cheah | 9:16 AM | |

ABC soup is a very common, easy to make nutritious soup, but as I have corn, celery and carrot in this concotion, how best to name it but the 3 C's soup!

The sweetness from these Cameron Highlands corn gives added flavour to this clear and nourising soup.

Recipe for 3 C's Soup

  • 2 sticks sweet corn, chopped
  • 200 gm carrots
  • 150 gm celery
  • 300 gm pork ribs
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper corns, crushed
  • Salt to taste
  1. Wash the pork ribs and then blanch them in a pot of boiling water, drain and set aside.
  2. Bring to the boil, the 5 cups of water and add in the pork ribs, corn, carrots, celery and crushed peppercorns.
  3. Boil on medium and low heat for 2 hours till the ribs are soft.
  4. Add salt to taste.
  5. Ladle into bowls and serve.

    Oh, those sweet corn were really sweet even after cooking. No wonder 3 hungry tummies was so proud of them coming from Camerons, her home town.
