Flying in the sky, running on the ground, swimming in the sea
There's nothing that can't be canned!
As the saying goes, if you have grain in your hand, don't panic. Canned food can not only lock thousands of delicious food in it, but also make time completely stagnant and the ingredients span time and space. In fact, it is the spring of epidemic, and the table of the general public is reassured.

Once its figure set foot on the land of China, it will spread its branches and leaves on the fertile soil of North and South with a lightning speed, which can make people eat the full feast of man and Han. Hong Kong Ayi, Shanghai Meilin, Guangdong Yuehua, Dandong Guangtian, Liaoning Hongta, Wenzhou Panda... Open a pot of dishes and spread them on the hot rice. When the gravy and vegetable soup melt, it is a full "pot" of rice.
Interestingly, Chinese people, who are widely baptized by the culture of "fresh food first and not eating from time to time", will only think of dusty cans in special times. For this reason, whether the canned food is delicious or not has become the standard for us to test it. Then the question comes: China is so big, where are the cans delicious?
1. Cans are neither earthy nor foreign
As long as it's delicious, it's a good can

When Napoleon fought in Europe, he offered rewards to solve the problem of military grain storage; Later, the French and British invented the method of using glass and metal containers to hold cooked food and then empty it, which is the prototype of modern cans.

In the early stage of production, the sealing method without pull ring was used; For pure food, only by carefully opening a hole first, and then prying up the cover with a tool, can we have the sense of ritual of eating cans. This opening method is also the symbol of "pure blood" of military canned goods.

Shanghai Meilin is the pride of canning localization; Cantonese cans also contain dreams and distant places. In the 19th century, Cantonese set off an upsurge of "going to Nanyang" to work. When they were far away in a foreign country, a taste of dace from their hometown became the desire of many "overseas drifters".
In the early stage, people fried the dace until both sides were golden yellow, then mixed Yangjiang Douchi, put it into the tank, let the soybean oil submerge it, and then sealed it with mud, and made the "start-up" Douchi dace that is resistant to storage. This is an ancient method. The secret is to isolate fish from the air. Dace can be preserved for at least two months.
For sailors, these cans of black bean dace are life-saving dishes in the boundless ocean. With the mellow flavor of Douchi and the freshness of dace, it can make people eat a lot. It is also a "God dish for eating" on land. With the accumulation of ancient technology and the modernization of cans, the flavor of "ocean floating" people's dreams has become cans heading far away.
A can of black bean dace, a handful of oatmeal, or a juicy bitter gourd are all home-made dishes that Cantonese can't live without.
