Dragon Boat Festival to eat dumplings is our hometown's main custom. Just arrived in May, the home began to soak glutinous rice. Mother usually prepare a pot of rice to soak, but also put the leaves is soaked in water, may be brewing glutinous rice would be more sticky, I remember mother has been doing this for years.
Start the zongzi dragon boat day, mom, I occasionally make trouble, try to learn in, but every time it ended in failure. It seems zongzi is not simple.
Zongzi also can put some dates, raisins, chicken and other mixed in glutinous rice paste, making different flavors of dumplings. And I like to eat most MiLiJia meat, taste special fragrance.
