Snow Pears and Apples Chicken Soup

Serve 6


3 snow pears (cored and cut into quartered)
2 Fuji apples (cored and cut into quartered)
1 whole chicken breast with bones. (Washed, cut into 4 pieces and blanched with boiling water)
$1 worth of mixed Chinese bitter and sweet almonds
2 carrots (peeled and chopped into chunks)
10 seedless red dates
Sea salt


1. Boil a big pot of water.

2. Once the water starts to boil rapidly, put in the chicken breast. Cook for 10 minutes.

3. Add the pears, carrots, Chinese almonds and red dates. Cook with high heat for 10 minutes before reducing the heat and simmer for 1 hour.

4. Add the apples and continue to simmer for another 1-2 hours.

5. Add some sea salt as desired.

Do not peel the fruit so that they will stay intact during the simmering. May add snow fungus too.
