Daily Cuisine of Ethnic Shui People

Rice is their staple food and they like eating glutinous rice, supplemented with corn, barley, wheat and sweet potatoes. A kind of liquor made of rice goes to entertain guests or is offered to dead ancestors at sacrificial ceremonies. They pay more attention to fishing and livestock breeding for meat.

The sour soup is very appetizing. It consists of pickled materials including hot pepper, tomatoes, fish, shrimp, bones of pig and beef. Then vegetables are added into the soup and boiled, much like hotpot. The Shui people eat it all year round, and rarely do they make fried dishes. The Shui people like drinking wine. Their traditional Jiuqian Wine has a history of more than 2,000 years.
