Sometimes when my mother went to school, my family survived on ramen, tuna fish sandwiches, and milk. This is my first time making homemade ramen. This was very good. The consommé was flavorful. The Szechuan peppercorns have a unique and exciting flavor. The flavor is something similar to lightly flavored juniper berries and lightly flavored black peppercorns. I am going to make this again soon with Tien Tsin chili peppers [1], and then with other Chinese and Asian spices. There are probably traditional Chinese soups that contain vinegar or sweetened or pickled beans or vegetables. Thomas Keller makes chicken stock with chicken feet. Markets where I live have chicken feet.

These ramen noodles were made with bread flour, salt, and water. They were exciting. The flavor of the noodles was great. Someone makes consommé by making stock, and then simultaneously clarifying the stock while making broth with the stock. Stock is made with bones and vegetables. Broth is made by adding meat to stock. Consommé is made by adding vegetables and egg whites to broth. The recipes that I have add the meat, vegetables, and egg whites to stock. This method eliminates having a separate step for making broth. The consommé in this blog post is chicken consommé. The idea for making consommé is my blog post Chicken Consommé With Celeriac In Puff Pastry And A Chicken Salad Sandwich. Cheesecloth can be used to strain the consommé.

Sometimes the boiled chicken used to make consommé tastes very good. I like to use this chicken to make chicken salad. I made sourdough bread to make chicken salad or tuna fish sandwiches. The recipe for this sourdough is in my blog post Thomas Keller’s Sourdough Bread. I never put this dough on the counter. I floured, patted, stretched, rested, and shaped the dough in a non-oiled bowl because I lacked counter space today. Once I shaped the dough, I put it in a non-stick bread pan. I did not bake this loaf using steam. The bread has a soft and crunchy crust. This is my favorite bread.

Ingredients:

Stock: 2 chicken carcasses, 3 onions, 1 pound baby carrots, 1/2 head of celery, 3 green bell peppers, 4 scallions, 4 jalapenos, 1 head garlic, 1 bunch cilantro (in cheese cloth), 2 bay leaves

Consommé: 1 onion, 1/4 head of celery, 2 chicken breasts, 2 chicken tenderloins, 4 egg whites

Soup: 2 chicken thighs, 2 chicken drumsticks, 2 chicken wings, 1 onion, 1/4 head of celery, 4 scallions, 2 tablespoons Szechuan peppercorns (in cheese cloth), 4 egg yolks, about 2 1/2 teaspoons Diamond kosher salt (1 1/4 teaspoons table salt, a little more than 1 1/4 teaspoons Baleine sea salt, about 1 3/4 teaspoon Morton kosher salt)
