Old cucumber are commonly used in cooking soup. The mature cucumbers are highly favoured for their nutritional values and the YIN or cooling properties that helps to reduce body heat. It’s a popular home remedy in Cantonese culture to detoxify the digestive tract, nourish the body, soothe coughs/ sore throats, and contribute anti-aging benefits. Adding black eyed peas in the soup elevates the nutritional values and taste.
