      I loved this soup and I would have made hot and sour soup before, if I had known the results would be so delicious, and easy to make!My family really enjoyed this soup and it had a wonderful flavor. I made this for Best of 2010 Cookbook Tag. Thanks for a new family favorite!

      This is a great recipe; I've made hot and sour soup before and this was definitely a step up from last time. It had a good amount of tanginess, but if I did it again I might add a little sugar to brighten up the flavor. It was hotter than most soups I've had in restaurants which my boyfriend liked very much, but my mom wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole so this is not a recipe for the weak of tongue. :] I put in some dried black fungus and that was a nice addition. Thanks for the great recipe! -DD of LavenderLynn made for ZWT6.

      The taste is fabulous! I did add a bit more garlic. Otherwise, I made this as posted. This is one of the best Hot and Sour Soups I've had....first one made in a Crock Pot. It didn't thicken up , but I really didn't want it to. Loved all the flavors and loved the heat! I'll make this one again.
