Herbal Soup For Cough

I had being coughing badly for the past 3 weeks and it seems that all the medicine or herbs that I had used to take before all lost their effect. So after being drag for so long, I decided to give this Herbal Soup For Cough a try. You might feel...Err.... "Crocodile Meat", how does it taste like? Friendly speaking, this soup smells and taste fishy which i guess is because of the Crocodile meat. But after all it's really a good soup to relieves cough and strengthens function of respiratory system. Just like what they said in Chinese(良药苦口) although it's might taste awful or bitter but it is definitely good for health.

2 Pieces(30-50g) Dried Crocodile Meat(鳄鱼肉)
20g Nan Bei Xin(南北杏)
6 Pieces Of Dried Huai Shan(淮山)
10g Chuan Bei Mu(川贝母)
1/2 Piece Of Chen Pi(陈皮)
5 Red Dates(红枣)
2 - 3 Dried Figs(无花果)

1. Rinse all the herbs and place it in a double boiler.
2. Add in 1 litre of boiling water and double-boiled for about 2 - 3 hours and serve.Posted by Picasa
