In Germany they have Asia weeks in Aldi every now and then and when that happens everyone is rushing there like crazy to buy canned Bihuhnsuppe because it is so good. Well, here is a recipe that I found with the help of some of the wonderful chefs at Zaar to make it from scratch. I haven't tried it yet, but thought I'd share and posted it for safe-keeping. The cloud ear mushrooms are also called wood ear mushroom and are quite common in Chinese cooking. If you can't find them dried in your supermarket or Asian market, you can just use more button mushrooms. In the UK you can buy them in Tesco Extra stores, they are shelved together with the other dried mushrooms, beans and vegetables.:D
