In my hometown,folks all use leaves of pineapple to wrap sticky rice,dates,peanut kernels,red beans,etc.Those leaves radiate a special fragrance,which make us slobbering.What's more,leaves can be used repeatedly~~The shape of Zongzi is not a pyramid but a quadrangle which is consisted of two half slices~~

What a delicious food!!
