      Title: Peking duck bone soup
 Categories: Loo, Chinese, Poultry, Soups
      Yield: 6 Cups
           For the broth:
           Bones from 1 Peking duck
           Carcass, neck, gizzard,
           Wings, leg & thigh bones
      1    Scallion
      1 sl Ginger
      1 lb Celery cabbage
           -(ch'ing tsai)
      2 oz Dried bean thread
           -(bean vermicelli)
      2 tb Oil
      2 sl Ginger
    1/2 tb Salt
    1/2 ts MSG
      6 c  Peking duck bone broth
           -from above (if there's
           -not enough, cut with
           -chicken broth or water)
      2 oz Chinese or Smithfield ham
      1    Duck gizzard, from the
           -broth pot, sliced thin
  Originally, Peking duck was served in three courses, to wit:
  1. the familiar pancake, scallion, and sauce bit (cucumber slivers
  also sometimes), with which the skin was served without the meat;
  2. the meat, combined with stir-fried vegetables in a soy-based sauce,
  served alone or with rice;
  3. a soup made with the bones of the duck just eaten.
  Now, in our streamlined 20th century, the courses are combined into
  one, the meat wrapped up with the skin and the scallion in the
  pancake, the vegetable course is omitted, and the soup is presumably
  drunk by the staff.
  Cut cabbage across into 1 - 1.5" chunks (these will separate on
  cooking). Soak bean thread in water until soft, then cut into 6"
  lengths (Warning - if you omit this cutting, you may find a guest
  choking on the stuff, which I did once).
  Simmer in water to cover for 45 min: bones from 1 Peking duck:
  carcass, neck, gizzard (which had been roasted with the duck), wings,
  leg and thigh bones. Season with 1 scallion and 1 slice ginger.
  Heat oil in a soup kettle. Add ginger, salt, and cabbage. Stir-fry 1
  min. Add all remaining ingredients except bean thread, gizzard, and
  MSG (if used). Cover and cook until cabbage is tender, 3 min or so.
  Bring soup to a boil, add bean thread, gizzard, and MSG. Turn heat
  off. Serve immediately.
