  1. Rose, thanks for sharing your recipes. [1] Why do you soak the watercress (watercress with honey dates soup) in salt water for 15 to 20 minutes? [2] Some of the recipes cannot be accessed because the links are missing. Are the pages being updated?

  2. Hi Susan,
    I normally soak my leafy vegetables in salt water to get rid of the insects or worms.
    As for the recipes which you cannot access, perhaps you let me know which ones so that I can check it up.
    Thanks. Rose
