What's the Zongzi? And how to eat it?


Zongzi is an Chinese traditional food. Some people also call it rice dumpling. Firstly, people use plant sleeves to wrap up glutinous rice, and then fixed with cotton strings.

But at this time the Zongzi can’t be eaten because they are raw. Secondly, people put them into water and then boil them for roughly about 1-2 hours.

After that, you can eat the cooked Zongzi. Also you need strip off cotton strings and plant sleeves, and then you can eat it with chopsticks.

In many places, there is not only glutinous rice in Zongzi, other foods are added in it, such as meat, yolk of duck eggs, bean paste, jujubes and so on.
