In traditional Chinese culture, black vinegar is believed to be able to purify blood and cleanse arteries. While the brown sugar is said to keep a check on “dampness” (dampness is caused when new mothers touch cold water during the postpartum period and leads to severe arthritis in old age) in the body, furthermore old ginger drives out the “wind” (wind is caused when new mothers wash their hair or take a bath during the confinement period and leads to a cold) – these ingredients all provide beneficial effects to a mother after childbirth. The ingredients of the dish include pig’s trotters, eggs, ginger, sesame oil, black vinegar and brown sugar.
However, black vinegar may be too “acidic” and might weaken the stomach especially when consumed daily for a month. This is why gelatinous ligaments from the pig’s trotters are introduced into this dish to act as a protective lubricant. Sesame oil is used in the dish to promote blood circulation and eggs are good source of nourishment for the new mother’s body and speeds up postpartum recovery. There are a lot of restaurants in Guangzhou that will allow inbound visitors and local residents to taste this Cantonese delicacy.
