Xiaji Mianyuan (Sweet Dumpling)

Last updated by chinatravel at 2013-11-2

It is also called Zhuang-zi Mianyuan, Gongyuan, Baiyuan and Renzi, etc. It tastes moderately salty and fresh, fragrant, pure and refreshing. Literary quotation: there are many legends about Xiaji Mianyuan as it was made in ancient Shouzhou. It is said to be presented once to the Emperor as tribute in order to express gratitude for his capability and virtue of rescuing common people from an abyss of suffering and famine. There is another version of story that Zhuang-zi once passed by Shouchun or whereabout when he wandered about the world. When he was subject to extreme thirst and hunger, he went to the house of an old peasant woman. The woman treated him with local “Renzi”. After he took this, he gave high praise to it and very grateful for her kindness. Therefore, it has been spread up to now.
