The neighbors help each other in steaming years, and the rural warmth in Henan is very warm
👆On the eve of the Spring Festival, in Nanping Village, Orchard Township, Dianchi County, Sanmenxia, Henan Province, 61-year-old Lu Mother is steaming in the yard. Every year before and after the twelfth lunar month, Lu Ma must send out several large bowls of white flour, and then pick it up. A good vegetable filling and bean filling will be steamed into steamed buns or steamed stuffed buns until the face is opened. It is enough for one family to have a Spring Festival.

👆The taste of the countryside is more manifested in the mutual help of the neighbors. Whether you are killing pigs, over-oil, or steaming, everyone can help each other. When you come together and eat together, people feel very warm. Next to Lu Lu’s mother, her neighbors are kneading. The two have a good relationship. Each year is an appointment to simmer with them. Today, you come to my house to help. I will go to your house tomorrow.
👆Aunt Lu said that in the year of steaming, the place where steamed and steamed is not the same, except for the amount of steamed ones at a time, and the other ones are numerous. There are three pots on the board of her home, respectively, with bean filling and meat filling. Egg leek filling, these buns are very large, one can fill their stomachs.
👆In addition to steamed buns, steamed stuffed buns, and other tricks, these are specially prepared for children. A group of ordinary faces churn up and down in Lu Mu’s hands and soon becomes a hedgehog look. Two red beans make eyes, this “small hedgehog” is more realistic.
👆The tools used to make flower pots are also varied. The scissors that were used to make hedgehogs are now used to make melons with thimble needles. These tools, which are usually used for needlework, are useful when steamed.
👆The iron pot used to steam the soup is in the yard. Don’t look at it. The Chinese New Year can not do without it, steamed, boiled, and oiled. Distilling steamed rice is a technical activity.

👆After more than half an hour of firewood, Luma opened the lid, and the white stuffed buns and gimmicks huddled together. She held her hands together to split the gongs in time, because she would stick together later. This can steam for fifteen or sixteen years. The face made with fermented grains has a strong scent of wheat. This steamy scene makes people feel very old.
👆Due to the fast pace of work, most of the food they eat is taken from the store. Many children may not have eaten steamed steamed buns for a whole year.
