Cantonese Apple and Pork Soup

(Last Updated on May 7, 2024 by Amiee)

Apple and pork soup is a traditional Cantonese soup that I often make. I like it because it’s good for the spleen and stomach, and it’s light, sweet, sour and delicious.

Many people will wonder why apples should be cooked if they are not eaten raw.
Let’s count the benefits of eating cooked apples.

First, from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, all raw and cold foods are not good for the spleen and stomach.Cooked apples have the effects of moistening the lungs and promoting body fluid, nourishing the spleen and appetizing, sobering up alcohol.

Secondly, in cooked apples, the dietary fiber pectin is softened. They are more easily utilized by the human body.
Cooked apples are more suitable for people who are bad rhythm, have imperfect oral teeth or poor gastrointestinal function.
They can reduce chewing and reduce irritation to the gastrointestinal tract.This soup is easy to make.
