I will treat you some special rice dumpling this time, 中山芦兜粽 :)





中山的粽另有自己的特色,因为中山人比较喜欢改良、研究,特别擅长制作适合自己口味的食物。古时,村民觉得郊野多芦兜,认为这种百合科野生植物别无用途,不妨用以试作裹粽。果然,芦兜叶味融入于粽,别有风味。故此,日久成为家乡特色的芦兜粽。历数百年而至今天,宾馆酒楼的茶市,每到农历四五月,仍有保留着切件芦兜棕供应给茶客,甚至在酒楼门前装饰宣传,色纸飘飘,大量销售芦兜粽。
  中山芦兜粽是圆筒状,两头交错一字平口,一般直径12厘米,长30厘米,酿入洗净的糯米(有微量精盐、生油、拌匀),夹以烧腩肉、咸蛋黄(洗净蛋白胶为宜),用圆水草绑扎。武火煲至水滚放入芦兜粽,文火煮4个小时,间中加些开水,收火留浸于汤内4小时。味香腻,食之韧滑。昔日,悦来南路琼芳茶楼,在马路旁当众裹粽,起了活广告作用。据说,其所用的烧腩肉,还加上微量五香粉,粽的香味更浓郁。有些家庭主妇,在煲芦兜粽的水中,放些菖蒲以增加"香"味。是时,茶楼、饼店、小商贩纷纷做芦兜粽出售,供应给消费者及送礼者。
  芦兜粽的传统吃法,是在端午节当天午时,一边喝五彩粥一边品尝芦兜粽。五彩粥分别用红豆、绿豆、赤小豆、黑豆和白豆煮成。

My mom keeps asking me if there is another translation for Duanwu in English other than "Dragon Boat Festival," or should we just use "Duanwu?" What do the words Duanwu mean anyways?

Duanwu is Duanwu, there is no need to translate anything.

Duanwu is celebrated on lunar calendar May 5th. Duan = Begining, Wu = Five, so Duanwu = May 5th

In Chinese 端午 = 初五.

The Chinese caledar is not solely based on the moon, it's actually a soli-lunar calendar.
