Yunnan has a picturesque landscape and a pleasant climate, and as an indigenous person here, I love it deeply. People say Yunnan people are hometown treasures, and yes, it's because the climate is really good for living here, and after living here, you don't want to go out and experience all kinds of temperature differences. It's also because it's a plant kingdom, a corner favored by nature, and there are a variety of rich ingredients that you can't eat, only what you can't think of.
Yunnan's food markets are not as busy as those in first-tier cities, but they have a lot of eye-opening ingredients that people in the provinces don't know about, which is the unique charm of Yunnan's food markets.
Many of my friends expressed how much they liked the vegetable stalls in Yunnan towns, especially the ones sold by ethnic minorities, and I told them that even I, a native Yunnanese, hadn't figured out many of the dishes, not to mention you provincial people. Everyone also to see, you have not eaten these, think the taste of what?
I. Grass sprouts
The underground young stems of balsam fir resemble ivory in color and shape. It is mainly produced in Jianshui, Yunnan Province, and there are many ways to eat it, but it is not easy to store and should be eaten while it is fresh. Only locally can you taste the most authentic sweetness of the grass sprouts, otherwise the taste is soft and tasteless, making the whole dish lose its unique flavor.
The most common is used to cook soup, with other ingredients cooked together, mama san san, this food should be in the sky, how will fall in the dust of Dian. Wake up early with a bowl of rice noodles, shredded chicken, quail eggs knocked in, leek and tofu skin sprinkled on, throw a small handful of grass sprouts, ladle in the boiling hot chicken soup, pour a bowl of blanched rice noodles, rolled noodles or noodles, and then a spoonful of red bright hat, perfect!
Second, stinky ginseng
Stinky ginseng is also known as stinky medicine, stinky party ginseng, orchid ginseng, and hu-haoyang ginseng. It has a long history of cultivation and consumption, and is also one of the therapeutic drugs used by Yunnan people for autumn and winter tonic.
The common cooking methods are: boiling, steaming, stewing, simmering, roasting, etc. However, it has one bad thing, because of its pharmacological effect, it has a lot of farts after eating stinky ginseng.
I remember when I was a kid, my mom would always buy a bundle of stinky ginseng and come back to clean it carefully when it was available. There was so much soil on them that they had to be washed many times and then casually cut into several pieces or not, and cooked directly with chicken or ribs.
Three, the ground wheel
Also called: manna seeds, pagoda vegetable, ground silkworm, grass stone silkworm, earth ginseng, ground roll, screw vegetable, ground ring child ...... One resembles a screw rod and a pagoda. Eat fresh, sweet and tender, crisp and tasty. It can be eaten raw or pickled for cold dishes, stir-fried, exploded, boiled, stewed and fried; it tastes better when cooked with non-vegetarian ingredients.
In fact, we prefer to make it into a savory dish, sweet and crunchy sour, as a snack and a savory meal are particularly refreshing. Clean it, put it in the sun to dry the moisture, add salt, chili pepper noodles, white wine, brown sugar or white sugar, knead and mix evenly into the inside, put it in a sealed jar and seal it for at least half a month.
IV. Winged fruit vine
The winged fruit vine, looking like a small gourd, is abundant with Pu'er and Ning'er, mainly eating its fruit, which tastes bitter and is also known locally as a small bitter gourd. It is eaten by stir-frying or pickled and dipped in sauce and chili. Because of its effectiveness in clearing heat and lowering summer heat, brightening the eyes and detoxifying the body, and tonifying the kidneys and moistening the spleen.
Finfruit vine cut and sprinkle a little salt to marinate 10 minutes to drain out part of the bitter juice, put soy sauce, vinegar, chili oil, pepper oil, garlic foam, etc. mix well to marinate for half an hour.
V. Doyle fruit
Doyenne fruit, also known as sour doyenne, is yellow-green in color and yellowish when pickled. It is an ingredient that will not stop until your teeth are sour.
Not only is the doyenne fruit unusually sour and difficult to chew, but it is a sought-after item on the table, and can be served as a staple, mixed with various seasonings and pounded or dipped in chili alone for a tart and appetizing weekday snack. It can also be used as an accompaniment to give a unique flavor to Dai cuisine.
Six, banana flower
Ripe plantain flowers, with purple skin, are very eye-catching. When they are about to bloom, pick them, peel off the purple petals and take out the stems inside the petals, which are crisp and sweet, but slightly bitter. It can also be stir-fried according to your taste.
Seven, taro flowers
Taro flowers are similar in shape to "garlic shoots", but they have long purple-red stems and yellow flowers. Tear off the purple skin and skim it into sections, and take or leave the yellow petals underneath, not the yellow heart. The taro flower and eggplant are not only raked and soft but also quite tasty, definitely a good dish for dinner, loved by the elderly.
Eight, wild mushrooms
Yunnan's wild mushroom variety, there are often ethnic minorities backpack to sell mushrooms, many varieties we have never seen, in addition to the mushroom this kind of thing, even if they know are not 100% sure of the safety, so do not know the kind, do not have the courage to try, in order to eat the loss of life is not worth it. The above picture is to see the hand green, is a kind of edible, but easy to poison the bacteria, only cooked cooked to be safe.
As a local, from childhood elders will be tired of nagging eat mushrooms should pay attention to all kinds of matters: 1, can not eat raw mushrooms; 2, do not eat cold mushrooms, to eat must be reheated; 3, fried mushrooms, the spatula can not have bacteria, so as to avoid the existence of raw mushrooms mixed eat poisoning; 4, eat mushrooms best not to drink; 5, do not eat fried mushrooms.
