Change of Season Soup Stock by Blueberryjams
An Adaptogenic Soup Stock Blend with astragalus root, codonopsis root, goji berries, chinese wild yam, red dates, + maitake, shitake, and reishi mushrooms.
Recipe: There are two general ways you can use the mix. 1) Make a chicken or veggie stock with them and 2) Boil them in stock while making soup & remove the herbs. I have mostly done the former as I find the act of making soup stock to be a healing remedy in and of itself.
- Fill a large stock pot with 2-4L of water.
- Add soup mix (in a cheesecloth bag if you would like for easy removal).
- Add chicken carcass if desired.
- Add vegetables & spices according to taste. For example, add carrots, celery, onions, garlic, etc. If making soup option, add your veggies & grains.
- Bring to a boil and simmer for 2-4 hours as you would for stock making.
- Strain out herbs and bones.
Drink 1 cup per day for two weeks. Drink in a mug or use in meals.
This soup is a preventative immunity booster and should not be taken when running a fever.
