I cook mine for hours in a crock pot and keep adding water. For extra flavor, I might add green onions or chives, finely chopped celery, scallops (my Chinese grandmother always used it!), sea salt, and white pepper. Occasionally, I might add finely chopped carrots (for the kids), as extra natural color. GREAT with leftover turkey!

I think you left out a few things.. Like spices and what's the green stuff?

Thanks for your comment, I made the necessary edits. I usually only use salt and pepper to taste but to each his/her own. =)
