Drink a glass of this mixture reheated to a proper temperature in the morning and evening for three days on end. The cough will surely be cured.

(2)A delicacy which serves as a cure for cough



Pork stewed with chestnuts is a delicious dish, but it is also an effective cure for cough. Take 200 grams of clean pork and 200 grams of peeled chestnuts.
