This Pear, Apple and dry Fig with Pork Rib soup cures cough and this has been proven by myself and my kids. Recently, we have been coughing quite badly, and my cough was those dry kind and very irritable especially at night when I was sleeping.

My mum got this recipe from her friend who claimed that just drank the soup twice and her cough was cured completely. I was pretty skeptical initially, but indeed after drinking twice, my cough recovered 90%. Similarly for my two years old.

The best of this soup is, it has very simple ingredients and extremely easy to cook although it is time consuming as I was using slow cooker to boil the soup. Most importantly is, this soup is naturally sweet and delicious.
