Apple and Pear Soup ~ 苹果梨汤


This is an easy to make, simple comfort soup.  The apples and pears help to soothe and moisten the throat and lungs which are what we need right now to combat this extremely hot, humid and hazy weather.  I added in some lean pork and seedless red dates which help to enhance the flavour and make the soup sweet.
