69 Stewed Snow Fungus, Pear, and Apricot Seeds

INGREDIENTS

  • 2-3 pieces of snow fungus, soak until soft then remove the roots
  • 1-2 pears (any type of Asian pear is fine)
  • 1 Tbsp of apricot seeds/Chinese almonds, rinsed
  • A pinch of rock or brown sugar, can substitute honey
  • A lot of water

DIRECTIONS

Step 1
First wash the snow fungus. Then soak them in water for 4-6 hours until they are soft. Change out the water twice while they are soaking. Remove them from the water and cut off the roots. Then use your hands to tear the fungus into small pieces.
Step 2
Fill a large pot at least halfway full of water. Cook the snow fungus and rinsed apricot seeds. (Cook covered on high heat first until the water starts to boil. Then turn the heat down to medium or medium-low and let the soup simmer slowly.) At this point, if there isn’t enough water in the pot, add more. Simmer with the lid on for at least 3-4 hours, until the snow fungus is completely soft.
Step 3
30 minutes before removing the pot from heat, add the sugar and cut up pieces of pear. Cook with the snow fungus until everything is soft, then serve. (If you are using honey as a sweetener, add the honey to each bowl when you eat, rather than with the pears.)

P.S.

This is a very nourishing sweet soup. Not only does it help to clear the lungs, but it also increase your skin’s collagen. Women should drink this soup often.
