  1. Blanch chicken feet and ribs in boiling water for about 3 - 5 minutes to remove scum and dirt. Remove from pot, rinse and set aside.

Cooking Notes
1. Prep time does not include soaking time for the peanuts.
2. If you cook this in a thermal cooker, put in all the ingredients and bring to a rolling boil. Then simmer for about an hour.
When you are ready to transfer the inner pot to the outer pot, turn up the heat and let it boil vigorously. Remove the pot from the stove and transfer it into the outer insulated pot. Let the trapped heat continue to cook the soup for 1-2 hours. Season with salt to taste.
