Clay pot soup is a favorite local food in Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi province. Locals usually serve the dish for breakfast.

The key to cooking a perfect bowl of clay pot soup is the simmering. Usually bowls of the soup are arranged in a giant clay pot simmering with burning coal for more than seven hours.

With raw materials of chicken, duck or pork seasoned with traditional Chinese herbs including angelica, ginseng and red dates, the soup is not only rich in flavor and fragrance but considered to be good for health.
