中秋芋头蛋和月饼男孩 Mid-Autumn Festival Mini Yum & Mooncake Boy

月饼吃多了,今天和大家分享一年一度只有中秋节时才能吃到的迷你芋头~芋头蛋(我不知道正确的名字,因为家里都是这样叫的)。

以芋头拜月、祭拜祖先和吃芋头是潮汕中秋节的一大习俗。从前我们家每逢中秋节都会买很多芋头蛋和菱角来过节。

说起来已经很多年没吃过菱角了,现在很像从没看过有人卖。菱角的外壳是硬的,形状像在飞的鸟,因为是黑色的,所以我常常把菱角和老鹰联想在一起,小时候看了会怕怕。吃时把壳剥开就行了(就像是吃栗子一样),里面的肉是白色的,感觉有点像在吃栗子,但是和栗子比起来,栗子会比较好吃。

照片中看到的是来自汕头的芋头蛋(也有来自香港的,味道没那么好)。和一般的芋头比起来,芋头蛋的味道更香浓,吃进口嘴尾还带有甜味,口感更是绵绵幼滑。做法很简单只要拿去蒸就行了,单单这样吃或是沾点幼糖吃就已经很好吃了。

今天是中秋节,在此派出Lucius祝愿大家中秋节快乐。

但愿人长久,千里共婵娟。


Happy Mid-Autumn Festival to all friends and readers!

  8. Hi everyone, thanks for your wishes.

    Mr. Lonely, thanks of leaving a comment. I have visited your blog, looks good.

    myme, I went to the NTUC near my place the day before didn't see any 菱角 on sales. May be it's only available in bigger branch.

    Jess, my grandmother and mother like the mini yum a lot too. I find that old folks generally like to eat yum and a lot of youngters actually don't eat yum at all except yum cake. With this theory, I think I am also one of the old folks. Hahaha.
