Pear Paste (秋梨膏)

  1. Prepare 6 very big pears. Peel them, remove the seeds and cut into small chunks.
  2. Put all the pear chunks into blender and blend into paste.

Prepare ginger, red dates, 2 luo han guo (crushed) and 50g rock sugar cubes.

Put everything including the pear paste into a pot. Bring to boil with high heat. Then turn to low heat and simmer for 30 mins.

Sieve everything and only keep the liquid. To save more liquid, you can place all the residue into a cotton cloth. wrap it and squeeze all the juice out.

Pour the juice into the pot again. Bring to boil with high heat and simmer with low heat for about 1hr 30 mins. Or until it becomes as thick as honey.

Keep in a jar and store in refrigerator.

1 tbsp of pear paste and a glass of water.

Very good for coughing problems.
