Double Boil Pear with Fritillaria II

Following my cough remedies here and here, I got the last recipe from IC.

Instead of removing the core, I cut them into quarters.

After 1 hour of simmering, my pears were still white. I should have cooked it longer, probably for another hour.

Double Boil Pear with Fritillaria II
(Recipe adapted from U-Weekly magazine, translated by IC)

Ingredients (serves 2-4)
2 Ya Pears 鸭梨
3g Fritillaria, crushed 川贝母 (original recipe: appropriate amount)
40g rock sugar (original recipe: 150g)
400ml water
4pcs dried longan (original recipe: 5g)

Method
  1. Peel & de-core pears.
  2. Put all ingredients into a porcelain pot (I used my AMC pots).
  3. Place pot into larger pot with water and let mixture simmer for abt 1hr.
  4. This dish can be serve either hot or cold. If serving hot, it is good for throat.
