**tips**

if cook the Watercress before water is boiling, the soup will taste bitter. that’s why must bring water to boil before adding Watercress

if put many watercress into a slow cooker in the same time, the slow cooker need to spend long time to bring water to boil again. Soup taste bitter

so, use boiling water to heat Watercress separately first. Then, transfer the hot Watercress into slow cooker (water in slow cooker is boiling)

by this method, slow cooker can bring water to boil again in short time. no bitter taste.
