Participating in the menu this time is Xulongxing's Mexican butterfly glue .
The medium and large sizes are 2-3 times thicker than the small size. Compared with the small size, the gum will be thicker and the taste will be better.
Butterfly glue needs to be soaked in advance .

During the soaking process, some ginger slices can be added to remove the fishy smell.
Step 1: Blanch the spine
The bloody water that comes with raw meat has a fishy smell. Therefore, before cooking, you should blanch the meat in boiling water until it changes color and remove it. This will not only reduce the fishy smell, but also remove the blood foam and make the soup clearer.
Step Two: Simmer
Put lotus root, spine, scallops, fish maw , ginger, scallions and red dates into a stew pot (electric cooker, pressure cooker, casserole are all acceptable), pour 2 liters of water and start to boil.

If you use an open fire stew pot, after the high heat is boiled, change to a low heat and simmer for 1 hour.
