INSTRUCTIONS
Wonton Broth 1. Clean the pork bones. Add water to a stock pot with 1 teaspoon of salt, take it to a boil with high heat. Add pork bones and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and rinse the pork bones with cold water, rubbing off all residue from the bones.

  1. Meanwhile, soak the dried
    shrimp in water for about 20 minutes. Then drain.

    water, pork bones, ginger, jicama, dried shrimp, salt and mushroom powder. Take it to a boil on high heat.
