PLEASE NOTE: The author sells herbs from the site, but ask us about the higher quality, pesticide and heavy metals tested herbs we can get for you from a source we trust – Spring Wind Herbs, Inc. in Berkeley, CA.
Fall is typically a dry season. Here is a sample recipe from the website, to address dryness of the lungs. This recipe uses American Ginseng, which is an expensive ingredient and usually highly treated with pesticides. A good substitute is dang shen 党参, which we currently have in stock along with the red dates – just ask about it!!! Add your favorite veggies to make a stew or soup about 20 minutes before the end of the cooking time (step #2).
Another version of this soup that tonifies Qi, nourishes Blood, and is also moistening to the internal organs is a mixture of dang shen-codonopsis 党参, hong zao-red date 红枣, gou qi zi-lycium (chinese wolfberry)枸杞子, dang gui – angelica sinensis 当归, and shan yao-dioscorea 山药. We have this herbal soup packet available for purchase for $4.95 – get yours today!!!
