Jazzlyn Rayne: I do not make these - nor do I particularly like them. But here is a recipe for you. As for the sweet red sauce - I am not sure what you mean. I have only seen them with red bean sauce in the center.
2 1/3 cups glutinous rice flour
3/4 tsp of salt
1 tsp sugar
1 cup of water
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the water and stir till a smooth ball forms. Then coat hands in rice flour and knead till very smooth
Break off pieces and form in oval balls.
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Add a few of the rice balls at a time. Boil for 2 - 3 minutes - until they float to the top. Remove from water and drain.
I have a question. I am also a great fan of corsets. What is the best way to put one on and take it off, both when you have help and solo. I am sure there is a knack with those fiddly hook things I just do not seem to have it
I really do hate to disappoint - but I have no idea how to get in or out of my corsets by myself........... which is a huge disappointment to me.
I was told that with practice I would be able to grab the ties in the back and then by doing a whole lot of wiggling and a whole lot of pulling / contorting I would master tightening the corset. Yay??!! I don't think so..............
The first problem is trying to get those fiddly hook things (see picture above) done up. I get half done up and then when I am attempting to get the others done - the first ones unpop. There is nothing - and I do mean NOTHING - more frustrating.
I have been told to start at the top..........
I have been told to start at the bottom.........
I have been told to start in the middle..........
All with the same result.......... they pop open again.
And as for all that wiggling and jiggling to tie it up oneself.......... I just don't think I can get it as tight as someone else can.
And once in - one would think it would be as easy as pie to get out of it right??
WRONG! I was warned that unless the corset is loosened by a good 2 inches - trying to get the hooks undone could/would result in damage / possible breakage to the corset.
So what's a girl to do??????? Find someone who can get the damn hook thingies done up and is a good lacer. And then pray you have someone close at hand when it is time to rip that lovely piece of fabric and molding steel boning off......... cause I don't know about anyone else - but when I have had enough ......... I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!!
So unfortunately I have no words of wisdom Hil........ except find a really close friend to hook and tie you into your corset and hang around to unhook and untie you once the evening is over........
