Pork ribs with Huai Shan, Lotus seed & Fig soup

Recently the weather is not so good, it can be so warm in the day and very heavy rain at night. I think better boil some soup to strengthen the body.
Besides the herbs, I also like to add carrot to the soup, so that the kids can have more vegetable which they usually lack in their meals.

300g loin bone
2 carrots
4 figs --white color, available in medical hall
1 piece of dried orange peel
38g huai shan ( 淮山)
38g dried lotus seed (莲子)
1. Rinse pork bone. Scald in boiling water for 3 min.

2. Rinse figs, huai shan, lotus seeds. Soak them in water for 30 min. Rinse dried orange peel.

3. Rinse and remove skin of carrot. Cut into pieces.

4. Put all ingredients into a pot. Add about 2 litre water. Bring to the boil. Reduce to low heat and cook for 2 hours. Serve.
