Weekend Food Tour: Taiwanese Spring Roll

April 5, 2011 is Tomb Sweeping Day here ( 清明節/清明节 or Ching Ming Festival) . Literally, Ching Ming means Spring (pure and bright). Spring roll is associated with this festival, it is offered during Tomb Sweeping Day. The story that handed down to this generation~spring roll is the cheapest, easiest,  and tastiest food that they can offer to those who passed away during the war.
 Here are the ingredients~sausage, boiled pork, carrot, cabbage, peanut powder with sugar, eggs, green vege, garlic powder, spring roll wrapper.  The ingredients should be 13 in all, I think we only had 9. The meat was just sliced into cube and boiled. The flavoring was only powdered peanut and sugar or simply garlic powder.

Some students volunteered to do the cooking, while I'm busy taking photos :)

The fun part, all of us wrapped our own spring roll in whatever we want :)
