The perfect recipe for dry/cold weather; stewed pears are an excellent way to hydrate and nourish your lungs which will bring back moisture to respiratory pathways and re-hydrate you from the inside, out.
If you are suffering from a dry cough, dry sinuses or extra dry skin, this easy recipe is for you.
- 4 medium ripe pears
- 1/2 inch fresh ginger root
- 1 clove
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional: Please note that while pears are hydrating, they are also cooling so if you suffer from chronically cold and/or feet you should add cinnamon as it is a warming spice)
- Chop pears into cubes and place in a saucepan with little water (so that the cubes are not fully covered)
- Add the ginger/clove/cinnamon and cook over medium heat until soft (10-15 min) or until you get the texture you like best
