Winter Solstice (冬至) - 21 December 2008

2008's Winter Solstice (冬至) falls on 21 December. It's the Tang Yuan (汤圆) time again. Yay! Tang () is soup and Yuan () is round, which implies reunion and full satisfaction.

Tang-Yuan are sweet glutinous balls made from glutinous rice flour and served with hot sugary water. The default (:P) version has no filling in the center. The newer versions have fillings such as red bean paste, creamy peanut or sesame paste.

The default version recipe (in English)

Ingredients: 1 cup glutinous rice flour, 4 ounces water, brown sugar to taste, fresh ginger

1. Pour the glutinous rice flour in a bowl and slowly add water until the mixture becomes the texture of dough. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes.

2. Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll it into small balls.

3. Drop the balls into boiling water and cook them until they float (about 5 to 10 minutes).

4. While the balls are cooking, prepare a sweet soup by boiling water and adding brown sugar. Fresh ginger can also be added to the soup.

5. Put the cooked balls into the soup and serve.

Happy Winter Solstice!
