Zhu Laoda Zongzi

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/1

Zhu Laoda Zongzi (a pyramid-shaped mass of glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo leaves) has a history of nearly one hundred years. It is a traditional food with the Huzhou local flavor.

The most famous are Xisha (Red Bean Paste) sweet Zongzi and salty Zongzi with fresh meat. The specially made rose Xisha (red bean paste) in the sweet Zongzi are pitch-black and shiny with sweet and glutinous taste. Chosen ham is cut into strips and spread all over the salty Zongzi, which has fillings at both ends and tastes fragrant and fresh. This kind of Zongzi will not turn rancid even if it is stored for one week during the dog days of summer and will not go bad even if kept for half a month in winter.

Zhu Laoda Zongzi enjoys great popularity. In 1984, it took part in the Zhejiang Trade Fair held in Shanghai and received favorable comments from all social circles. Thereafter, its sales volume increases with years and it falls short of demand. At present, Zhu Laoda Zongzi is produced with upgraded equipment and vacuum-packed to meet export demands.
