Chinese dry fig

I love to use dry fig in my chinese soups. Lately, I have incorporated some dry figs into my daughter’s congee. Dry fig has sweet taste and throat soothing effect. A great list of benefits are hiding in this little fruit.

  • help and soothe sore throat (Recipe 1)
  • help dry cough and asthma
  • moisten dry lungs that are caused by dry cough or dry weather
  • help soothe weaken lungs cause by prolonged coughing (Recipe 2)
  • nourish stomach and promote digestion
  • promote fluid production through meridians of the lungs
