Here I wish to learn more about Zongzi.

WHy are they made in this old-fashioned way to this day?

Why wrap food up in plant leaves?

In a small town in Guizhou I saw zongzi being marketed in a supermarket. It stores them in a freezer.

I have eaten zongzi many times throughout the year. Nothing special except that it's a rice that tastes much better because of the added flavours than ordinary rice does.

So why the leaves? It's a little wasteful, isn't it?

I know how to make zongzi but I don't understand why it has to be made this particular way.
