Why are Pineapple Tarts so popular during Chinese New Year?
Pineapple tarts are one of the most popular delicacies offered to visiting guests in many households during Chinese New Year. The word pineapple phonetically sounds like “ushering good luck” huang li (黃梨), wong lai in Cantonese and ong lai in Hokkien. As such offering this delicacy to your guests and savoring it will welcome good luck for the year ahead of you. Here is a link to the recipe that we have used in our yearly tradition of making this together with our family members.
We wish you all the best of luck for the upcoming Year of the Dog!
