In China, the locals celebrated Dragon Boat Festival last Monday (6/6) . Everyone ate Zongzi. Zongzi is rice, wrapped and cooked in bamboo leaf. While at dinner last Monday, the restaurant served us complimentary Zongzi. This was a sweet version with red dates. They also gave us sugar, in case we preferred it to be even sweeter.
I like Zongzi. My Mom makes the best ones – rice with pork cooked in soy sauce, salted egg, chick peas, candle nuts and rice. Yummylicious!
Did you have Zongzi last week?
