BANH CHUNG/ BANH TET - SQUARE DESSERT
MUT - CANDIED FRESH FRUITS
Mut Tet (Tet jam) just isn't a food to provide in meals during Tet vacation, but more like a treat to enjoy guests in this unique duration. Mut is definitely held in beautiful cardboard boxes and put during the table when you look at the living room, and it is the primary food for the proprietors and visitors to taste whenever they’re speaking, liked over a cup of beverage. Unlike Western jam, which will be frequently in liquid form and offered with bread, "Vietnamese jam" is primarily in dry kind, frequently dried fresh fruits and some sort of seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, watermelon seeds). This once-in-year mix of snack is quite huge in variety, with many preferences: ginger, carrot, coconut, pineapple, pumpkin, lotus seed, star fruit, sweet-potato. Today, cake and sugary are gradually changing jam in Tet period, but many individuals still love the taste this unique food – an angle of Vietnamese culture.
