Notes

12/30/24- boiled the broth for 4 hours then pressure cooked. Next time, just try the pressure cook method after cleaning the bones. Used 3 cubes of frozen TJ ginger, 4 pieces of garlic and white parts of 2 pieces of scallions (need to increase for next recipe, perhaps double) after pressure cook for 30 (need to increase to 45-60 min)—need to bridge the depth gap

Followed black fungus recipe to prepare the wood ear mushroom (tasted perfect for the ramen- no need for fresh wood ear or dried wood ear). Dried black fungus strips are the ones we used.
