Traditional Chinese Recipe for Coughs

Fall is a time when coughs can appear.  Here's a simple yet very effective recipe to help soothe those coughs: 
4 cups of water
¼ cup of almonds (about a handful)
2 pears (any variety), cut into pieces
1 or 2 large pieces of tangerine peel (organic!)
                            2 to 3 tablespoons of honey
Bring the water to a boil in a large pot.  Add the almonds, pears and tangerine peel.  Allow the mixture to boil down to two cups.  Stir in the honey.  Drink while warm once or twice a day for about a week.
