Usually Zongzi's are made by grandmas and mothers using their traditional recipes.
After my experience, I can understand why it is easier to buy them because they are quite hard to make and the final part binding is quite difficult.
Just when I thought it was finished, the zongzis need to be cooked for at least four hours before everything inside is fully cooked.
We made the vegetarian zongzi and the sweet one.
I added extra pickles in my vegetarian one because I love those pickles!~!~
How the zongzi is made:
Step 1: choosing the leaves to wrap the zongzi:
Step 2: forming the shape to put the fillings
Step 3: Putting the fillings in:
Step 4: Binding it
Here were mine, after they were cooked for 4 HOURS~~~~~
