Green Green

4 10 2015

We pounded the life out of that nián gāo. (Actually, that thing that looks like a battering ram was crazy heavy.)

We went to the Ancient Town (Mínhè) today because it is famous for homemade nián gāo (“knee-an-gaow”). Nián gāo is made by boiling glutinous rice flour and then pouding it into a paste. They said we could try pounding the nián gāo if we bought 5kg of it (that’s a lot).

The Ancient Town was very beautiful, and we learned the word “dìdìlǒ” in our friend’s dialect, which translates to “green green.”


This man and woman were rocking out our nián gāo.


Beautiful “green green” outside the Ancient Town.
