The weather is becoming colder and drier. I have been making Chinese soup remedy to balance the dry weather but haven’t been writing recipes. As this is my first Chinese soup recipe, I decided to make a simple one. Chinese make soup with ingredients which serve as remedy for different weather and sickness. For example this recipe is for dry weather which is good for skin and throat and have a moisturising effect. You can find all the ingredients in Chinese supermarkets. Traditionally, we use rock sugar to sweeten the soup. But I have a lot of dark muscovado sugar at home, so I decided to use that instead.
