"Hot and sour soup" is a Chinese soup claimed variously by the regional cuisines of Beijing and Sichuan as a regional dish.
The Chinese hot and sour soup is usually meat-based, and often contains ingredients such as day lily buds, wood ear fungus, bamboo shoots, and tofu, in a broth that is sometimes flavored with pork blood.
It is typically made hot (spicy) by red peppers or white pepper, and sour by vinegar.

"Judas Ear mushroom is named after Judas of the bible because it was thought by some that he hung himself on an elder tree. It is one of the few mushrooms that doesn't freeze and can be found year round in most locations."
"Fresh bamboo shoots must be cooked before eating as raw shoots are bitter and texturally hard to digest. The outer leaves are tough and will not be edible regardless of cooking, thus they should be removed prior to cooking."
Dissolve soybean paste, and boil it for 4 min. on high heat. When it boils, lower the heat to medium, boil it for another 10 min.8
When the paste soaked out fairly, add tofu and coarse red pepper powder, boil it for 2 min. Add green/red pepper and boil for another 1 min.
