  • Hi everyone, I'm Jacqueline, Hsuan-hui.

  • We're now here at Baihe District

  • and I'm now at the lotus park.

  • The lotus here is so beautiful.

  • Let's go and appreciate its beauty.

  • There are many lotus fields to admire alongside the lotus park.

  • Lotuses are not only beautiful to look at,

  • but also have many uses.

  • This is Mr.Chen.

  • Hi, Mr.Chen.

  • Hello, Hsuan-hui.

  • Hi, everyone .

  • This beautiful lotus field

  • has actual economic values.

  • What are the growth characteristics of the lotus?

  • And what are the tasks that should be done

  • during the whole year?

  • When we plant lotus,

  • the year-long process includes

  • sowing seeds in spring,

  • and picking them up in full blossom during summer.

  • That is why it's summer when we view and pick lotus or eat lotus seeds.

  • Most lotuses bloom for only three days.

  • Three days after the full bloom, only the seedpods are left.

  • After 21 days, the lotus seeds have started to mature.

  • Lotus seeds have twin cotyledons.

  • Between them, there is an embryo, called a lotus core.

  • In autumn, the water of the lotus fields is drained.

  • In winter, the lotus roots are gathered to make lotus root powder.

  • Every part of the lotus can be made into different kinds of things,

  • and so could you please give me a brief introduction

  • of all these different kinds of parts and their functions?

  • In terms of different parts of lotus,

  • the leaves can be dried

  • and then be used in lotus leaf wrapped rice.

  • Lotus is a plant with high economic value.

  • Besides looking pretty,

  • the petals, leaves, seedpods, stems and roots of

  • a lotus can all be utilized.

  • There are many trace elements in a lotus.

  • For instance, the pollen of a lotus is very nutritious

  • and can be used to make tea or broth!

  • After a lotus withers the seedpods are revealed.

  • Lotus seeds grow in the lotus seedpods.

  • Lotus seeds fit well with any dish,

  • no matter whether it is lotus seed chicken soup,

  • dry fried lotus seeds with peppers and salt,

  • lotus leaf and seed rice,

  • or even red dates with lotus seed soup are all delicious.

  • The lotus roots harvested in winter

  • can be made into lotus roots powder or lotus root tea.

  • Lotuses of Baihe District are special

  • because their farmlands are irrigated

  • by the special water from the hot springs of Guanziling.

  • As a result, the lotus seeds and roots receive sufficient nutrients.

  • That is why lotus seeds in Baihe are extremely soft after cooking.

  • They have a dense and smooth texture that melts in your mouth.

  • So when we want to harvest the lotus,

  • is there anything that we should pay attention to?

  • When we harvest the lotus,

  • we can see that its stem floats on the water,

  • so we will follow the stem deep to the bottom with our hands,

  • then use our thumb and forefinger to twist it off from the soil.

  • Afterwards, we rinse the flowers.

  • Water in a lotus field isn't deep.

  • Yet, it's easy to imagine how hard it is to walk

  • among the pristine lotuses with all the mud underfoot.

  • The hard part of harvesting lotuses is probably not falling over.

  • When harvesting for different uses,

  • the part of the lotus that is harvested also differs.

  • Ornamental lotuses

  • are cut from underneath the water at the bottom.

  • If lotuses are going to be dry preserved,

  • they have to be cut from the receptacle.

  • To get the lotus seeds, of course you have to harvest the lotus seed pods.

  • Processing still has to be done to gather the lotus seeds

  • from the lotus seed pods.

  • So how can we take out the lotus seeds from the lotus seed pod?

  • First, we have to use the spoon edge and cut it open,

  • and then rip it off.

  • Now you can take out the lotus seeds, like this.

  • Lotus seeds have green outer skin when harvested

  • from lotus seed pods.

  • The lotus seeds have to be deskinned to be edible.

  • Speaking of the processing of lotus seed,

  • there are three more steps.

  • First is to use this tool to strip off the seed shell.

  • Don't underestimate these two pieces of wood.

  • They are specially designed

  • with grooves in the bottom to roll lotus seeds.

  • The top piece of wood has a hidden blade.

  • The blade can't be thicker

  • than the skin of the lotus seed,

  • or else it would damage the lotus seed.

  • A circular cut is made using a rolling motion,

  • to make it easier to remove the skin of the lotus seeds.

  • The second step is to remove the skin.

  • The third step is to remove the core of the lotus seed.

  • Using a needle and pushing upwards,

  • the core can be removed.

  • The core of a lotus seed has a bitter taste

  • so that it isn't popular.

  • However, the core of lotus seeds

  • can be used to make tea.

  • Wow! There are a variety of products here.

  • So, could you please introduce one or two for me?

  • Hsuan-hui, for girls who want to maintain their beauty and keep young,

  • you can drink perfume lotus.

  • It contains vegetal-placental hormones

  • which is good for girls.

  • You can smell its fragrance, it's really nice.

  • When coming to the lotus park in the summer,

  • there is no need to worry about not having a place

  • to rest from the sun.

  • There are a few stores at the front of the park

  • where you can rest

  • and try lotus root tea or lotus blossom tea.

  • They are very refreshing.

  • Here at the lotus park,

  • you can not only enjoy the beauty of lotus

  • but also enjoy a lot of food or products made by lotus.

  • So I recommend every one of you to definitely

  • come here and take a visit.

  • The lotus park is not the only place you can see lotuses.

  • You can see lotus fields all alongside Baihe.

  • We're now here at Siaonanhai ,

  • and this is a tourist attraction

  • where you can also enjoy the beauty of lotus

  • and also a lot of other flowers can also be discovered here.

  • The views here at Siaonanhai are spectacular.

  • It is really suitable to take a stroll and enjoy the flowers.

  • If you're tired, you could also rent a T-Bike.

  • In the summer,

  • it is also the season for the golden shower trees to bloom.

  • There is also a famous lotus viewing spot on Golden Shower Tree Boulevard.

  • Many people take pictures and tag themselves there.

  • If the wind is blowing, you might have a chance to understand

  • how the golden shower tree gets its name.

  • Isn't that romantic?

  • Remember that you can only view the lotuses blooming in the morning!

  • There are also many communities in Baihe promoting short trips.

  • You can sign up as a group to book a short trip.

  • This is Neijiau Community.

  • A group of mothers in the community

  • are making red clay salted duck eggs.

  • Everything is done by themselves from packaging, production, to marketing.

  • I'm now here to learn how to make the red clay salted egg.

  • To make red clay salted duck eggs,

  • of course you would need to first find red clay.

  • You need to break the red clay first.

  • Next, you would pass the red clay through a sieve.

  • At the same time, break apart any pieces that are still too large.

  • When the red clay has been broken down fine enough,

  • the red clay is added to salt water and mixed evenly with a mixer.

  • The duck egg has to be cleaned beforehand.

  • Next, the duck egg is dipped in rice wine,

  • and then covered evenly in red clay.

  • Finally, it is covered in rice husks

  • to prevent the red clay from sticking.

  • Tada~we are done!

  • After we cover it with the red clay,

  • we would just leave it alone for like twenty days.

  • And if you want a saltier flavor,

  • you can leave it alone for like twenty five days.

  • This is the twenty-day's-egg,

  • it tastes really good.

  • You can have a taste of local cuisine on a community short trip and

  • home-cooked meals made with local ingredients.

  • Although it is a simple home-cooked meal,

  • you can really taste the flavors of the land.

  • This is a dish made with lotus seed.

  • Along within the lotus seed,

  • it is mixed with the taste of different kinds of vegetables,

  • so it tastes a little sweet

  • but also very delicious.

  • This is Wa gui (Savory Rice Cake).

  • It 's kinda like the rice pudding.

  • It's a traditional dish we eat in Taiwan.

  • There's also a dessert prepared for us.

  • The watermelon!

  • Perfect for summer.

  • Definitely the best thing you should eat on this kind of hot day.

  • Don't miss out on Guanziling when you visit Baihe.

  • You can soak in the hot springs, admire the setting sun,

  • or eat barrel broiled chicken.

  • You have got to take a nice break when coming to Baihe!

Hi everyone, I'm Jacqueline, Hsuan-hui.
