1 old cucumber (slice half lengthwise, remove seeds
but retain the skin, then cut across into chunks)
250 gms pork ribs
8 red dates
3 honey dried dates
1 litre water
Blanch pork rib and set aside. Bring water to boil. Add pork ribs and the rest of the ingredients. Turn on high heat and let it boil for 5 mins without covering the pot. Turn down the heat to low and cover the port and simmer for 2 hours. Add salt to taste before serving.
Note: Some people like to add a piece of dried cuttlefish or dried scallops. It is all up to individual preference.
