NOTE: This broth takes a full day or at least overnight to make. Plan accordingly. Unused broth can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days or frozen for up to three months. This recipe is for the broth only. For a full meal, you will also need ramen-style noodles and toppings of your choice. Pictured toppings include preserved bamboo shoot, sliced braised pork belly, soft boiled marinated eggs, sliced scallions, raw enoki mushrooms, and blanched baby bok choy leaves.
