Hot Boiled Pear

 Hot Boiled Pear is a street snack that the people of Lanzhou have loved for hundreds of years. Lanzhou's weather is dry, so Hot Boiled Pear is an excellent dish to moisten the lungs in winter. At the beginning of each winter, stalls selling Hot Boiled Pear can be seen everywhere on Lanzhou’s streets. One can see a large casserole on a coal stove, inside of which is a big yellow pear is boiling and out of which pours a delicate herbal flavor and refreshing fragrance. When it snows, eating a bowl of Hot Boiled Pear allows the whole body to fill with a comfortable warmth, as if the fluttering snow is being blown away by a warm breeze.
