Today is the traditional Chinese festival "Dragon Boat Festival"。 There are many customs on the Dragon Boat Festival, such as drinking realgar wine, racing dragon boats and making zongzi. My mother and I will make zongzi!
At noon, we couldn"t wait to take out the soaked glutinous rice, jujube and Zongye. Start making zongzi. First circle the zongzi leaves into a cone, with the big mouth up and the tip down. Then throw a jujube into it, which is just blocked on the sharp mouth. If the zongzi opens, it can block the rice and prevent leakage. It"s really "one jujube blocking off, ten thousand meters don"t come out"。
Then, I filled the glutinous rice with zongzi, covered the glutinous rice with the back Zongye, covered it with another leaf, and tied the zongzi with thin thread. A large and delicious zongzi was ready.
Looking at the sweet zongzi, I thought of a great patriotic poet - Qu Yuan. For thousands of years, his great spirit has been integrated into small zongzi. When we taste zongzi, we can feel the distant patriotic plot.
The annual Dragon Boat Festival is coming again. The Dragon Boat Festival always changes days frequently in the Gregorian calendar, but in the lunar calendar, it is always the fifth day of May. The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Dragon Boat Festival, was a major day for disease elimination and epidemic prevention in the spring and Autumn period. After Qu Yuan died in the country, it became a day to commemorate the patriotic poet Qu Yuan.
In the Dragon Boat Festival, people have to race dragon boats, eat zongzi, hang wormwood and other activities, among which the essential thing is to eat zongzi. But my mother buys zongzi outside every year and has never made it by herself. This year, I want to make zongzi by myself, so I asked my mother to make delicious zongzi for me. Finally, at my request, my parents agreed.
When all the materials were ready, my mother took out two pieces of pork, cut them into small pieces, soaked the glutinous rice in cold water for half an hour, and then washed the green zongzi leaves clean. "Since we make it ourselves, we"ll make meat dumplings different from those outside." Mother smiled and said to me.
Starting to pack zongzi, I saw my mother put three zongzi leaves in the palm of her hand, roll them into a small horn, put a layer of glutinous rice in it, then put a few pieces of pork, and then put a layer of glutinous rice. Finally, seal the mouth, press it tightly with your hand, pick up a zongzi thread with your right hand, and wrap it tightly around the zongzi for three times, followed by a perfect knot. The zongzi is even wrapped. I felt itchy, so I wrapped it like my mother, but it was either big or small, or I opened up and down, and the glutinous rice leaked out. "For the first time, that"s good." With my mother"s encouragement, I packed more vigorously. After a while, we packed a big pot.
My mother cooked the zongzi in the pot for four hours. The long-awaited zongzi finally came out of the pot. When the lid was opened, a smell came to my nostrils, including the fragrance of zongzi leaves and the taste of pork. Finally, our family happily ate delicious zongzi.
This Dragon Boat Festival is very meaningful. I not only ate the zongzi made by myself, but also knew the origin of the Dragon Boat Festival and the story of Qu Yuan.
Besides the Spring Festival, my favorite is the Dragon Boat Festival. Why? Please put your ears together and I"ll tell you quietly that zongzi for the Dragon Boat Festival is my favorite.
Mother bought the materials for making zongzi as early as a few days ago and prepared the five-color thread. Early this morning, my mother began to make zongzi. I also want to learn. Mother said, "well, I"m afraid you can"t learn."
Just do it. I picked up two Zong leaves like my mother, rolled them into a funnel-shaped tube, picked up some glutinous rice from the water, put it in, press a honey jujube, wrap it with the rest of the leaves, and tie a thin nylon plastic rope. Eh, the zongzi I made is not very similar to that made by my mother. My mother"s edges and corners are clear. Mine is not as good as hers, and each corner is a little round. Looking at the "strange thing" in my hand, my mother "chuckled" and said intermittently: "are you.。. This is zongzi.。. Zongzi?"
I blushed and had to ask my mother for advice. My mother held back her smile and said, "there"s no secret when making zongzi. Just fold the corners of zongzi, don"t put too much rice, and attach another leaf when you live in the bag."
Oh, so it is. I quickly wrapped up zongzi as my mother said. Oh, this time my zongzi is much better than the last one. I began to wrap the third and fourth
At noon, I"m going to start cooking zongzi. I wait and wait. One second seems to become a year. I finally know what "living like a year" is. With my mother"s "zongzi out of the pot"， I ran to the kitchen at the speed of 100 meters. Regardless of the hot boiled water, I quickly picked out the less beautiful zongzi I wrapped, opened the "package" and ate it with relish. Mother smiled and said, "slow down, no one will rob you. Look at your greedy appearance!"
This Dragon Boat Festival is the most unforgettable because I ate zongzi made by myself.
The Dragon Boat Festival is held on the fifth day of may in the lunar calendar every year. It is said that this festival is to commemorate Qu Yuan, a patriotic poet of the state of Chu during the Warring States period. There are many special customs in the Dragon Boat Festival. In our family, we hang mugwort leaves and Acorus calamus on the door on the Dragon Boat Festival, and the family makes zongzi together.
Every year on the Dragon Boat Festival, my father gets up early and goes to the vegetable market to choose carefully and buy a bunch of Wormwood Leaves and Acorus calamus to hang on the door. Wormwood Leaves look a bit like chrysanthemum leaves. They smell like light traditional Chinese medicine. Acorus calamus has no taste and looks like a sharp sword. It is said that hanging Wormwood Leaves and Acorus calamus on the door can avoid disasters and seek blessings. After hanging up, we set out to grandma"s house for the holiday.
At Grandma"s house, we make zongzi every year. Grandma soaked the glutinous rice in the water early, and prepared a lot of Zongye to soak in the water. As soon as we arrived, we could make zongzi. Grandma taught me to choose a large and long Zong leaf, fold one end into a funnel like shape, hold it with one hand to prevent it from loosening, then add soaked glutinous rice and one or two red dates into it, almost fill the small funnel, fold the other half of the Zong leaf back, cover the glutinous rice, wrap it tightly, and finally tie it tightly with a rope, and a zongzi is finished.
Grandma"s action is very fast. Three times and two times, a zongzi is finished. With our assists, one after another, we quickly packed a lot. Grandma put zongzi into the pot to cook, and soon there were bursts of fragrance. "Zongzi!" Dad brought a large plate of zongzi. I picked up one, untied the rope, peeled off the Zongye, and the white glutinous rice stuffing was exposed. Take a bite. It"s soft and waxy. Take another bite. It"s sweet and fragrant. Originally, I ate sweet red dates. Zongzi is really delicious!
If only it were the Dragon Boat Festival every day.
Time flies. In a flash, the annual Dragon Boat Festival has come. I am happy to jump and jump, because this is one of my favorite festivals. I can eat sweet zongzi and play dragon boat races.
In the morning, when I got up together, I smelled a faint fragrance, so I hurried to the kitchen. It turned out that my mother was making zongzi. I also want to wrap, so my mother told me that first of all, Zongye should be washed and soaked in hot water. Then prepare the ingredients, cook the stuffing you like, then put the stuffing in the rice and knead it together. Finally, put the prepared stuffing in the dumpling leaves surrounded by a nest, make the dumplings into a four corner shape, and then put the wrapped dumplings in the pot and cook them over high heat. About five or six hours. In the process of cooking zongzi, I always can"t wait to open the lid to see the situation. Because of the aroma of zongzi floating out of the pot, my mouth watering.
Speaking of the origin of the Dragon Boat Festival, there was a story: in ancient times, there was a great patriotic poet Qu Yuan who gave advice to the emperor, but some villains felt that Qu Yuan was too powerful and meddlesome. They spoke ill of Qu Yuan in front of the emperor every day. Slowly, the emperor believed the lie, withdrew Qu Yuan from his post and exiled him to the frontier. Qu Yuan, who had the ambition of saving the country and the people and the plan of enriching the country and strengthening the people, was pushed out by his ministers. He was crazy. He came to the Miluo River and sang sad songs as he walked. On the fifth day of May 278 BC, he jumped into the river with a big stone and killed himself. The people nearby learned that everyone was rowing a boat to save him, but there was a vast ocean and waves everywhere. There was no trace of Qu Yuan. They were very sad. They sprinkled the rice in the bamboo tube into the river, even if they were dedicated to Qu Yuan. Also let the fish and shrimp full stomach, will not hurt Qu Yuan"s body, then they changed the bamboo tube filled with rice into zongzi, and the rowing boat into a dragon boat.
Eating zongzi and dragon boat racing is to commemorate Qu Yuan. Therefore, after liberation, the Dragon Boat Festival was designated as the poet"s day. This is our traditional festival - the Dragon Boat Festival.
