March is here, Lang Son wormwood cake is everywhere
The wormwood cake fever has come again, early in March, but on social networking markets, it is busy closing orders. Person 10, person 20 made the seller unable to close the order in time. The rustic cake of the Tay people makes Ha Thanh people remember forever just looking forward to the season to order.
Wormwood cake is actually a thick cake made from delicious glutinous rice and fresh wormwood of the Tay and Nung ethnic groups in Lang Son. The type of cake that sounds like the name makes many people think of spirituality, but it is actually just an abbreviation for wormwood cake.
If you eat this cake for breakfast, your stomach will not be bored, when you eat snacks, you will feel full for a long time, making many women love and compliment them non-stop.
Ms. Thanh (Long Bien, Hanoi) specializing in selling highland specialties for more than 3 years said: “The cake of wormwood is not too difficult to make, but it is very difficult to make this cake. Because this cake is handmade by ethnic minorities from delicious glutinous rice. If it is not delicious, the cake will be awkward. Most of the wormwood leaves are picked naturally on the top of Mau Son, covered with clouds all year round. Especially, even old wormwood leaves are very sweet, fragrant, and have no bitter taste.”
The retail price has not changed in recent years, ranging from 3,000 VND to 5,000 VND per unit. Normally, customers often buy 10 to 20 pieces at a time. Because the cake is quite small, each person usually eats 2-3 pieces at a time.
The rustic cake has no preservatives, so it is usually best eaten during the day. If you want to save it, you can wrap the whole leaf and store it in the refrigerator the next day and it will still be delicious as usual. This cake also does not worry that the seller does not import fresh, new cakes because the cake must be shipped early in the day to be flexible and fragrant.
Although wormwood cakes are available all year round, they are most delicious in March and April because at this time, wormwood is in the best season, which is also the new rice season. There are two types of cake, black sesame and white sesame, but most customers prefer black sesame because it has a strange taste in the cake, it will be more fragrant.
According to Ms. Thuong (Phu Thuong – Hanoi), regular customers shared: “During an outing on Lang Son, I tasted wormwood cake and fell in love with it. That time, when I bought a whole box of cakes as a gift, everyone praised it, asked where to buy it. Now the cake is sold a lot on the online market. Easy to buy, the price is the same as a little more expensive. Everyone in my family mentions that every March, I order to burn incense and then the whole family eats together.”
Wormwood cake is not only delicious, strange but also very nutritious. Because the raw materials are all from nature, they are handmade by mountain people for sale. Moreover, wormwood leaves have many effects to help relieve headaches, increase resistance, regulate blood and fight colds.
