This is another traditional food that we usually eat on the day of Dragon Boat festival,,
Originally it was from ancient days that a patriot named Quyuan who was suicide in the river of Miluo because he felt so hopeless of his country…People respected him very much and they were afraid that the fish in the river wouldl eat his body,so they made a lot of zongzi and throwed into the river to feed the fishes and then will not eat his body,,and also had Dragon boat competition on the river,, made such noisy tried to scary evils away,,year after year,, it become our traditional festival,,,,
Thats how come the food of Zongzi
It has a lot of flavors,,Sweet, salt,, or light taste,, we push a lot of stuffs inside,, such as red beans, horsebeans,,pork,,, salt egg, sausage,,preserved vegetables..
What I made is some preserved vegetable with meat inside,, and some salt eggs,,
