Steamed Pear With Sugar Cube


It’s ideal for people who has sore throat or coughing. My husband felt sick today. So I steamed a pear for him.


1. Remove the peel of pear. Cut the top off. Use a spoon to remove the seed in the middle. 


2. Add several sugar cubes in the middle hole.


3. Put the top back.


4. Put pear in a bowl. And put the pear in boiling water in a pot. Water should be lower than the bowl. Then cover the pot with lid. Steam for 30 mins with low heat.


Pear will be soft. Sugar cubes will be melted.
