How to Cook Duck Soup with Salted Vegetables


I used the duck bones (with a generous amount of meat left on it) from the same duck in my last post, to make duck soup with salted vegetables, a well-loved Chinese homestyle soup that originated from the Fujian province in China.

The duck soup segment begins about halfway through this live video –
