What is Dong Zhi and what do these little morsels have to do with it?

Dong Zhi is the Chinese Winter Solstice celebration. Winter Solstice has been observed in China as early as 2500 years ago. Tang Yuen are little glutinous rice flour dumplings, served in a sugar syrup. Yum!

Happy Winter Solstice, everyone!
