Cook the hen. Put salt into a pot of water, boil the hen, put ginger, black pepper and nutmeg flower into it and let it cook slowly. Once half cooked, pass through a strainer the water, wash the hen in warm water, put it into the pot once again, pour the pass through a strainered water onto it, then let it cook slowly. Its broths will be good.
