Asian Pear Recipe for Lung Health

Asian Pear Recipe for Lung Health

Makes 1-2 servings.

  • 1 Asian Pear (or any variety of pear, if not Asian pear then increase to 2-3 pears as Asian pears are quite large), peel and cut into bite-size pieces.
  • 1 ¼” slice fresh Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground Cardamon
  • 4-6 whole Cloves
  • 1 Tbsp. local raw Honey or Agave

Add all ingredients into a saucepan. Add enough water to cover pears. Bring to a boil, then cover and let simmer on low until pear is soft. (Asian pear cook time is approximately 15-20 mins, other varieties only 8-10 mins). Remove the cloves when cooked.

Enjoy as is, and drink the juice, or mash into a pear sauce. Also, you can add ingredients to your liking. For example, add 1-2 tsp. chia seeds and/or ¼ c. quinoa for a heartier meal.

This pear recipe is great for chronic lung conditions, warding off seasonal colds and allergies, it also moistens the throat, quenches thirst, and aids digestion.
