When Qingming Festival approaches, it's an age-old tradition to eat qingtuan, or green rice balls, in China's Jiangnan area - the region south of the Yangtze River. The green delicacies, sometimes shaped like dumplings, are usually made from glutinous rice mixed with pounded mugwort - an edible wild herb thought to prevent toxic insect bites. [Photo/Xinhua]
