No, you were PC the first way. It just struck me as funny and I cannot resist an opening like that.

TTB I went to my go to chinese cookbook to see how they make wonton soup and this is what I found... JC makes a broth from 1 chicken, 1 TBS dry sherry, 2 slices of ginger, and 1 scallion... Bring to boil then turn to simmer, skim off the residue and simmer for 2 hours... Strain thru cheesecloth to get a clear broth...

Then when making the soup take 4 cups of broth, 1 tsp soy sauce, and 1/2 tsp salt... Bring to boil and pour boiling broth over wonton...

If you want to experience a truly amazing broth, do a recipe search for Vietnamese Pho soup. Takes a bit of cooking, but by golly it is some durn good stuff. Make a big pot and freeze it in 1 serving batches.

Thanks again, y'all. Mimi, that broth sounds about right. Very light, like what I'm trying to recreate. What is the name of your go to Chinese cookbook? I have yet to buy any kind of Asian cookbook other than, Thailand the Beautiful Cookbook. I've really been trying to cut down but I still need some Asian cb's.

Grillingfool, thanks for mentioning Pho. I knew about beef pho, but I did not realize there was chicken pho (Pho Ga) before you suggested it. I've been googling. Yum, another new one to try.

Bigdaddy, I'm glad I gave you an opportunity to smile. :-) ... sincerely.
