But, there is another fruit related to the kumquat called Loquat. If you can get to chinese herb store you can find Honey Loquat syrup. Add it to tea and it will help with a cough. I was skeptical but it worked for me. Why does it work? Don’t know. :-)

I love the taste of the pink salt.

When I was little & had a sore throat (we’re Chinese), my mom would have us suck on “sour balls” (that’s what we called them). They’re actually salted dried plums. They’re really salty and hard and have a pit in the middle. It always worked. Now that I have my own kids, I have them suck on those “sour balls” now. You video reminded me of my childhood.

Looks like a marmalade that you add to water and drink. Citrons are high in Vit C and honey has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. My mom always told me to gargle with warm salt water to reduce swelling in the throat and loosen mucus which contains bacteria.

I haven’t tried salted kumquat before – for sore throats and colds my mom fed us “rasam” made with tamarind, spices and lemons-it looked like sewer water, but it did smell good!
Thanks so much for sharing this Chinese remedy, Jaden
