  1. Auntie, is this a seasonal soup and if so, what season is it good for? It resembles a soup that my mom used to make…

  2. I usually boil this soup during the hot season. It is believed to stabilize body temperature. Brown marrow is good for dry coughs. Red dates, rich in vitamin C and E are believed to help improve blood circulation. You can omit the pork ribs and serve as a sweet soup.
