This end of autumn and into winter soup is slightly sweet, not too cooling and is deliciously simple to make.

Soup Name: Snow Pears, Chayotes and Seabed Coconut in Pork Broth
Traditional Chinese Name: 雪梨合掌瓜湯 (xuě lí hup jeung gwa tāng)
Introduction: A mildly cooling soup that helps relieve heatiness, assist in cough and is naturally sweet. It’s great for kids, easy to make and contains all natural ingredients. You can use chicken meat with this instead of pork bones (or pork shank). If you can’t get fresh (or frozen) seabed coconut, the dried version is sufficient (although not as sweet, so you can substitute additional snow pears).
