Chapter 260
KFC was eating the dumplings quite carefully . There was a small plate of vinegar for everyone . Habitually, he bit an opening in the dumpling and directly dipped the fillings inside in the vinegar . It was tastier to eat that way .
However, KFC had never expected the dumpling was surprisingly like a hidden weapon . It seemed not to have gravy at all in the seemingly perfectly-round and well-stacked dumpling which the beautiful fillings inside could be clearly seen .
However, KFC suddenly inhaled continuously with a sound of "Si Si" while still managing to eat it .
It was only then that the heat came out of the dumplings . Along with it was the appetizing and fresh gravy . He could obviously see the oil droplets rolling inside . Meanwhile, the fragrance also stimulated his taste buds following the heat .
The skin of the dumplings or wonton was usually free from any taste . But KFC found the skin of Yuan Zhou’s dumplings not only had a taste, but also tasted chewy .
"Ba Ji, Ba Ji", along with chewing, the chewy and salty dumpling skin as well as the saline gravy with a hint of sweetness that he had just sipped into his mouth were instantly blended together and formed a wonderful taste .
KFC only had time to look at the dumplings after he hurriedly finished gulping down the gravy . After being sucked, the formerly white and plump dumplings had the fillings wrapped tightly by the skin .
"Now the gravy is gone . " KFC appeared rather complacent about his way of eating without leaking any drops of gravy just now .
Then he dipped the dumpling into the vinegar lightly . While picking the dumpling with the brown chopsticks, he rotated his wrist and dipped lightly in the vinegar with the part where he bit an opening .
"As expected, there is no more gravy . " With a complacent smile, KFC put the remaining dumpling into his mouth unhurriedly .
"Ouch . Si . It’s soooooo hot . " KFC emphasized on the word of "hot" heavily with a lisp .


It was truly scalding . After a full mouthful of the gravy was drunk, there was supposedly no more gravy in the dumpling, thus letting the skin tightly wrap the fillings . When KFC put the entire remaining dumpling into his mouth; however, the situation was not like imagined .
Having bitten through the dumpling, the gravy contained in the fillings then burst out . With the thin and chewy dumpling skin and the abundant gravy as well as the salty texture with a hint of sweetness, the taste was extremely fresh and tasty . The ultimate combination of meat and wheat .
Even if it was so hot, KFC was reluctant to open his mouth . He had only to try his best to make his mouth big and roll the stuff in his mouth . Consequently, his mouth was now full of the fresh and delicious taste of the thin-skinned dumplings . It was scalding, but he still didn’t want to drop it .
On the face of KFC revealed a hesitant expression . Luckily the temperature gradually went down and the dumpling was suitable for being swallowed . KFC chewed it carefully and then gulped down .
"It’s way too delicate and also too scalding . " KFC looked at the dumplings contentedly .
"The dishes we ate last time truly could not represent your genuine craftsmanship," thinking of the words of Sun Ming, KFC sighed and said .
"Humm, Humm . " Sun Ming was still eating happily at the side . He only chimed in with a nod .
It appeared that he couldn’t speak at all with the full mouthful of the delicious dumplings .
"Because the ingredients are quite different . But I had indeed used all my skills last time . " Yuan Zhou was rather straightforward to his brothers .
His craftsmanship at that time was not as good as right now . Despite the same ingredients, his craftsmanship had improved by two levels thus, of course, the dishes tasted better than before .
"I know, I know," seeing Yuan Zhou speak so earnestly, Sun Ming answered vaguely with a full mouthful of the food .
When Yuan Zhou found the two persons were satisfied with the dumplings, he began to make the Sweet Osmanthus Sandwiched Yuanxiao .


When Yuan Zhou found the two persons were satisfied with the dumplings, he began to make the Sweet Osmanthus Sandwiched Yuanxiao .
The method of making Yuanxiao was quite different from that of Tangyuan, therefore Yuan Zhou prepared a large bamboo basket to make them .
After a sound of "Peng", Yuan Zhou set down a white-jade-like board on which there were many cubes wrapped by a transparent jelly-like thing . Inside of the cubes were sesame seeds and some types of dry fruits, such as finely divided sunflower seeds that were clearly seen .
Of course, the most conspicuous thing in the small cubes was still the sweet osmanthus, which appeared to be fresh . The petals of each flower were clearly seen and brought out the best of each other with the dry fruits inside .
"What’s this?" while inhaling due to the hot dumplings, KFC asked with curiosity .
"Sandwiched sweet osmanthus . " After saying that, Yuan Zhou continued grinding the well dried glutinous rice with the stone mill .
"Beautiful . Are you going to make Tangyuan?" Having eaten up the dumplings, Sun Ming asked curiously .
"No . It’s the Sweet Osmanthus Sandwiched Yuanxiao . " Yuan Zhou told him again the name .
"Whatever . But you have to get another serving of the dumplings . There’s truly nothing more delicious than the dumplings . " Sun Ming heaved a sigh contentedly with the smile on his face .
"No . Only one serving is available for each person," Yuan Zhou said earnestly .
"You are really a Compass . Do you still remember that I’m your brother?" said Sun Ming with an awfully discontented tone .
He must be kidding . With only eight dumplings for one serving, how could one possibly eat his fill? People who couldn’t eat their fill were the most dreadful .
"Humm . That’s why I am treating," Yuan Zhou answered with a nod and said naturally .

"Humm . That’s why I am treating," Yuan Zhou answered with a nod and said naturally .
" . . . , I’m convinced now . " Sun Ming got speechless instantly .
"Don’t worry . You can order a bowl of Yuanxiao later and eat your fill . " KFC had likewise finished eating the dumplings by then . He said that after enjoying the aftertaste for quite a while .
"I don’t eat sweet food . It tastes so terrible . " Sun Ming waved his hands continually .
"The fillings really look nice . It’s crystal clear and beautiful," said KFC earnestly .
"I don’t eat anything that’s sweet . " Sun Ming was rather determined on this point .
At that time, Yuan Zhou happened to grind the glutinous rice well . Only after grinding thrice did the rice flour become fine and smooth and available to be used .
Different from other Tangyuan, this Sweet Osmanthus Sandwiched Yuanxiao had formerly been called Wuguizi in Jinling City, therefore the way of making it was also quite special .
Yuan Zhou first put the milled glutinous rice flour into a spun silk bamboo sieve and sieved it into fine rice flour .
"It is really elegant to use the cloth screen," Sun Ming said in surprise while pointing at the white spun silk bamboo sieve held in Yuan Zhou’s hand .
"The taste can be better that way . " When Yuan Zhou was working, his eyes that exposed from the face mask were extraordinarily solemn .
Yuan Zhou first brushed the Jianghua water over the bottom of the large bamboo basket and then poured the sandwiched sweet osmanthus into the basket directly .
He then began to shake the large bamboo basket with one hand and meanwhile scattered the rice flour and water with the other . After shaking the basket continually for a while, the white and cute Yuanxiao as large as cherries came into being .

"Marvelous work," KFC looked at the small Yuanxiao that were the same size carefully and said admiringly .
"Indeed . So it is done?" Sun Ming likewise revealed a surprised look .
They had never seen such a way to make Tangyuan . In their eyes, whatever had fillings inside were all Tangyuan . But actually, there was a significant difference between Yuanxiao and Tangyuan .
"Yes . Now they can be boiled . " With a nod, Yuan Zhou indicated that it was done now .
"I’d taste them carefully . I have never savored such a kind of Tangyuan . The fillings won’t leak out, will they?" KFC asked curiously .
"Definitely not . The craftsmanship of this brother of mine is terrific . " Sun Ming didn’t feel comfortable to hear others doubt his brother .
"I’m just asking casually . But couldn’t we eat more dumplings?" Speaking of the superb craftsmanship, KFC instantly recalled the dumplings that he had eaten just now . The nice taste was still lingering in his mouth .
"I’d say it’s too difficult . Even I couldn’t eat one more," Sun Ming said deservedly .
"I’ll come to try my fortune next time . Anyway, the Tangyuan① will be served soon . I can definitely eat my fill . " Said KFC with a complacent expression .
Sun Ming, " . . . "

① Tangyuan is a kind of glutinous rice balls, looking similar to Yuanxiao .
