Recipe by CJAY8248

Another recipe from Diana Liu's cookbook I've used for 42 years. The chicken broth used here is 1 can ( 14 oz.) chicken broth, 28 oz. water, 1/2" piece of fresh ginger and 1 green onion. Remove ginger and green onion before pouring over eggs.

How much ginger? You don't add the egg to the pot? The direction aren't very good
