We just enjoyed a great Winter Solstice meal and a great Christmas meal and we are now getting warmed up for the New Year feast! At this time of year Joanne likes to show viewers a traditional Taiwanese Winter Solstice meal indlding the little sticky rice flour dumplinges called ‘Tang Yuen’. Last year she made a sweet with these sticky rice balls in multi-colours. This year she decided to make Tang Yuen soup 鹹湯圓~冬至 for Winter Solstice festival. Please enjoy this savoury soup and share!
