Pear Soup for Sore Throat


My throat was a bit sore so I made this pear soup. According to Chinese medicine pears are good for the throat. They are supposed to get rid of excess heat in the body or something.

To make the soup I just chopped up some pears and put them in a pot with some water and boiled for about 15 minutes. I added some ginger and honey.

After eating this soup my throat felt much better. I highly recommend trying this if you have a sore throat.
