This is a traditional Chinese recipe for coughs. Pears have a cool essence that travels to the Lung and Large Intestine meridians, helping to relieve coughs and any excess heat in the Lung. Honey is a food that helps to moisten the Lung.
4 cups water
¼ cup almonds (about a handful), chopped
2 pears (any variety), cut into pieces
1 or 2 pieces tangerine peel
2 to 3 Tablespoons honey
Bring the water to a boil in a large pot.
Add the almonds, pears and tangerine peel.
Allow the mixture to boil down to two cups. Stir in the honey.
Drink while warm once or twice a day for about a week.
