  • 6 whole black peppercorns

  2. Cooking procedure: Place chicken in lg. stock pot and add enough water to cover chicken by at least 4". Bring to a boil over a high flame. Remove scum as it rises to the top with a fine mesh strainer. Process takes 5-10 min. Add leeks, ginger, salt and peppercorns. Cover loosely and turn flame to low. Simmer 4-5 hours, stirring with a wooden spoon every 1/2 hr or so. Add more water if needed. Taste for seasoning and add more salt if needed.
