Home-made Egg Drop Soup:

2 1/2 cups of water.
1 beef bullion cube.
1 tsp chicken bullion
1 tsp ground ginger
1-2 tblspns corn starch mixed in 1/2 to 1 cups cold water in a separate dish.
2 eggs + 1 yolk, beaten lightly.

Boil the water with the ginger and bullion to make a broth, and throw in the corn starch. Allow it to return to a rolling boil (and I do mean rolling!) before turning the heat completely off and pouring the eggs into the water through the tongs of a fork. You want the eggs to go in un-evenly: don't worry about going so slowly that nothing "slips over" the edge of the fork, slippage is good, it leads to occasionally chewy clumps along with the silky strands that result from the sifting. Stir to break things up a bit, and enjoy with crackers or peanut butter bread or whatever suits your fancy. MMMM.
