    Food Gifting.

    Over the years my customers have given me gifts of food. The usual cookies and candies during holidays and a few unusual items.
    One customer stands out. An elderly Chinese lady has been bringing dumplings filled with marinated pork and egg rolls.
    The other day she waited for me at the end of the counter. She pulled out a small bundle from a sack and handed it to me. It was a six inch by five inch leaf wrapped bundle that was tied up with a heavy twine. She told me it was called "donk", I may have heard her wrong. It is sticky rice filled with Chinese sausage, marinated pork, dried shrimp and peanuts, wrapped in bamboo leaves, tied up and cooked eight hours. She instructed me to microwave it for one minute and enjoy.

    I was like a little kid on Christmas morning!



    Microwaved one minute The bundle had a scent that reminded me of tea. Cut the twine off.



    Carefully unwrapped.



    This was wrapped with six palm leaves.



    You can see this was full of the sausage, pork, dried shrimp and peanuts.
    I really enjoyed all of the flavorful bites in this.



    I did a little research into this.

    Zongzi (Traditional Chinese 糭子/糉子, Simplified Chinese 粽子) is a Chinese dumpling consisting of glutinous rice and sweet or savory fillings wrapped in leaves, which is then boiled or steamed, commonly eaten during the Dragon Boat Festival. No mai gai (糯米雞) is a dim sum dish consisting of steamed glutinous rice with chicken in a lotus-leaf wrap and steamed. It is served as a dim sum dish in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia. Ba bao fan (八寶飯) or "eight treasure rice" is a dessert made from glutinous rice, steamed and mixed with lard, sugar, and eight kinds of fruits or nuts.

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
