Thanks for this great basic recipe! My boss has this melon growing in his backyard and gave me one. Substituting what I had around the kitchen -- dried Shitake mushrooms, ginger powder, finely chopped bacon -- I made this soup. I then added some cooked white meat chicken. At the table we used chili sauce and rice vinegar to make it a sort of "hot and sour" soup. Really delicious; a lovely winter food.

This is a nice complement to a Chinese meal. I followed the recipe as given, using ginger, salt and pepper for seasoning. Thank you for the recipe, Otto.

This is a very nice soup. I make it with pork chops..(3-4) by boiling them also, instead of ham. I also add a few chopped green onions. It is very easy to make very tasty.
