Nourishing apple drink

Sore throat, dry itchy cough and what not, what's a girl to do when she thinks of all her mum's concoctions from home? Well DIY and DIY the simplest and the nicest one to down. I love this drink and often makes it in a big batch so that i could store in my Tupperware tumblers and let it cool in the fridge. This is one of the reason i bought my big 8.5litres crock pot. Here's an easy peasy one to nourish that throat:-

-8-1o apples cleaned and cut into any wedges size
-A handful of red dates
-3-4 honey dates
-2 strips of cane sugar or rock sugar if you like

Just fill the crock pot with boiling water (to lessen the cooking time) till its 3/4 full, leave it on low if you're making this overnight or on high if you intend to finish cooking it within the next 3-4 hours.

Variations:- you could add in any of these ingredients; white fungus, sea coconut, dried longan, gingko hmmm ahh why not? In fact anything that you fancy to it.
