Apple & Carrot With Cabbage In Soup 苹果红萝卜菜干汤

Apple & Carrot With Cabbage In Soup 苹果红萝卜菜干汤

Recipe source :  Soups for all seasons cookbook

I often boil dried Chinese cabbage soup but this is the first time I added apple and carrot to it. The soup is appetising with a very slight tinge of sourish flavour, brought about by the addition of apple. I find it rather refreshing. 


2 apples
8 oz carrot                           ( I used 1 carrot )
5oz dried cabbage            ( I used 3 oz      )
10oz pork shin                    ( I used 350g    )
4 sweetened candy dates ( I used 2 candy dates )
1/4 dried tangerine peel
salt to taste
2000 ml water

Preparation for dried Chinese cabbage

1.  Bring a pot of water to boil. 
2.  Add in the dried Chinese cabbage and switch off flame. 
3.  Allow to cool before cleaning the leaves.
4.  Change water several times and open up the leaves carefully to remove grit and dirt.
5.  Rinse several times and cut into 4cm lengths. 


1.  Cut and core apples. 
2.  Peel and cut carrot into chunks
3.  Wash pork. Scald in boiling water. 
4.  Bring 2000 ml water to boil. Put in all the ingredients (except salt ) and bring to boil again. Lower heat and simmer over low heat for 2 hours.
5.  Add salt to taste.

  1. Hi Doris,
    The last time I used apples in soups was years ago, and have sort of forgotten about it, until LTU this month. Thought of making apple soup too, but till today, nothing is done! haha!
    Your soup looks yummy, I like all the ingredients that you've used.
    Thanks for sharing with CYB!

    1. Hi Joyce, don't forget, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! :)

  2. Hi Doris, it's been some years I've last made dried cabbage + pork ribs soup. Occasionally I boil soups using apples but have not tried adding to dried cabbage. Your pot of apple & carrot with dried cabbage soup suits the warm weather. Thanks for sharing ^-^!

  3. Hi Karen, Thanks for dropping by. Yes, this soup is good for our warm weather.

  4. Hi Doris,

    This is totally new as I have not try cooking apples in savoury soup. This is an interesting combination :D
