It looks like dumplings in shape, but tastes different from dumplings. The wrapper of Qingming Guo is made from squeezed wormwood, rice and glutinous rice. Finally, it is stuffed with bean filling and cooked by steaming. Aside from sweet fillings, people also use diced bacon, dried bamboo shoot, diced mushroom and dried beancurd as substitutes.

Like glutinous rice dumpling, Qingtuan is made from glutinous rice and stuffed with red bean paste. The difference is that squeezed wormwood or brome grass is used in the making of wrapper. Before placing it into the bamboo steamer, people would put some fresh leaves of common reed, making it a special flavor. It’s common in Shanghai during the Tomb-sweeping Day.
