Pork Bone Daylilies


  • Pork soup bones -- 1 pound (if you'd like the soup to be thicker, add more bones)
  • Daylilies -- 2 cups
  • Ginger -- 2 tablespoon, thickly cut
  • Water -- 8 cups
  • Sugar -- 1 tablespoon
  • Salt -- 1 tablespoon, or to taste


  1. Clean the pork soup bones and put them into pressure cooker. Fill the pressure cooker with water. Cover the lid and heat to a hiss for 15 minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat and let the pressure release naturally. Or to speed it up, put it under cold running water with the lid closed.
  3. In the meantime, soak daylilies in water to soften them. Take the stem ends away. Cut into small pieces.
  4. When the pressure of the pressure cooker releases, uncover, turn on the heat again, put in the ginger, sugar and daylilies to simmer for 15 more minutes.
  5. Add the salt. Make sure it's to your taste
  6. Simmer a few more minutes. Here you go, delicious daylily soup.
