Bewitching Baked Apples + Pears

I've found that the distinct flavor of Red Delicious Apples + Green Anjou Pears + Unrefined Coconut Oil truly gives new meaning to the word "Nectar". Toss in a few Red Dates (not particularly sweet) and there starts the magic. Indeed, eating with a medicinal focus can be oh, so delicious.

From the perspective of Chinese Medicine and the energetic properties of our key ingredients: Apples are cool, sweet and helps tonify your Qi, especially to the lungs during the cold/dry winter months. Pears, especially when cooked, also help bring moisture back to the lungs - easing ENT issues caused by dryness & phlegm. The Red Dates boosts the Qi while calming the spirit. These three, coupled with cinnamon & ginger (both warming & harmonizing to the stomach), make an amazing dish that can be enjoyed warm, cool and on top of almost everything. Enjoy!
