Snow Pear Dessert 炖雪梨
According to the Chinese, snow pear, is good for cough and reduce phlegm. Cook it with rock sugar help to reduce swollen throat, smooth irritation at throat, reduce cough (especially loud ones), prevent dehydration of respiratory tract, clear phlegm, and reduce fever.
I am making the basic snow pear dessert in this recipe. Sometimes, people do add lotus seed (莲子 ) or snow fungus (银耳) etc.
1. 1 pear
2. Rock Sugar
3. Orange Peel (shredded).......the amount is up to personal preference
1. Remove core and of pear. I use a butter knife and spoon to remove the core.
2. Add rock sugar. I fill the hollow of the pear with rock sugar.
3. Add about 1/2 cup of water. Alternatively, water level should be able the height of 3/4 of the pear.
4. Finally steam it for 45 mins.
5. Can be served either hot or cold.
