Green Dumplings 肉粽

I snapped this little shop by the roadside just on the eve of the Duanwu Festival (端午節).

And for Chinese, this festival staple food would of course be the Green Dumplings – 粽!

And you can just tell this this little shop is very serious about its dumplings!  Look at that giant pot in the background!!!

And here it is, the finished “Green Dumplings”!  Which are basically glutinous rice, filled with fatty meats (if done in the traditional, unhealthy way), wrapped in a fragrant leaf, and boiled!  Rice + Pork fats!  Mmmm…….
