Questions, Comments & Reviews

Great idea using an already BBQ duck from a Chinese deli. Being the thrifty/cheap person that I am, rather than discard the duck bones, i would brown them in a roasting pan in the oven then add it to the chicken broth to get that added duck flavor out of it. I would also rehydrate the dried mushrooms with the chicken broth and also add the resulting drained broth back into the motherlode. If the stock is too intenensely flavored, I would freeze some of the stock as a concentrate for another use and thin out the soup with more water. I am Asian-American married to a Scott-American. :) Keep those great ideas and recipes comming! Cheers...
