Snow Pear with White Fungus Soup


 

The weather is getting crazy these days.One moment it can be raining,another moment it can be scorching hot. I have been brewing this for almost every week to "cool" ourselves.

This recipe came from Mum.When i was staying with her,she brews this for the family at least twice a week.Its said to be very good for our health;nourish the lungs and reduce cough. I added snow pear and chuan bei mu when i am brewing this.(chuan bei mu-you can get from medical halls;i bought a small amount for $5 and grounded them.)

I am cooking for my family of 3 so i cut the pears into slices and brew them together.If you want a more concentrated soup(individual serving),you can boil everything in the pear itself.I will include the recipe for that as well.
