Asian pears with honey are a simple and effective home remedy for coughs and sore throat. My aunty used to do this for us but is also known for beauty. Unlike many cough medicines, it actually helps to heal the symptoms and not just suppress them. Enjoy this delicious and medicinal snack 2-3 times a day while you're fighting the cold virus.

Korean Cough Remedy
As  parents, have u been too busy with work and forget the ancient remedies that your child will remember or ur family appreciate your preparations?

Do something. Is worth it. Remember when was the last time u cook some things.


Wash the big pear and pat dry with paper towels. Cut the top off the pears and set aside (these will become the lid). Remove the core. If desired, cut off a small slice at the bottom so that the pear will stand straight during steaming. (Note: Depending on the type of steaming equipment you are using, you may find it difficult to stand the pears upright and cover for steaming. In that case, slice the pears lengthwise, core, and spoon the honey.

A) Chuan Bei Pi Pa Pear [for relieving of cough and nourishing of your lung]

1) 1 big gong pear (brown skin) 
2) 1 tablespoon Chuan Bei Pi Pa Gao
3) 2 tablespoon of rock sugar

Remove the skin and core, put all the 3 ingredients into the pear and steam for half an hour.  Drink the soup and eat the pear while it is warm.

Halve and core the Pear;
Put in honey to the hole and u can coat the side with honey too.
