There are no scenic spots in Taiyuan, but as a vinegar capital, this vinegar garden of East Lake must be visited. On rainy days, half a dozen cars and half a walk finally found this place. Although the surrounding area is relatively decadent, the vinegar garden management is really good. Once in, the courtyard was filled with large vinegar jars, all sealed with glass. Registered information can be free to visit and explain, here collected since the Western Han Dynasty in China, a variety of vinegar-making equipment, farming equipment, as well as hundreds of vinegar therapy prescriptions, pictures and texts are abundant, fully demonstrating the historical and cultural heritage of Shanxi vinegar. There is a strong smell of acetic acid in the vinegar workshop. After the visit, you can also taste vinegar, which has been sour for many years to the bone marrow ah. The last stop is the optional store, full of vinegar and vinegar derivatives. Prices are comparable to market prices, many of which are not available outside. Whether they are worth buying or not, there are different opinions. As a museum of vinegar culture and history, the model here is quite commendable.
Donghu Vinegar Garden is located in Madaupo Street, Xinghualing District, Taiyuan City. It is close to Erguang Expressway and is two or three kilometers away from the city center. The traffic is very convenient. However, there are many street stalls near vinegar gardens, which may lead to congestion. Vinegar Garden has a spacious parking lot. If you drive by yourself, you can rest assured of parking problems. East Lake Vinegar Garden should be visited free of charge, but there are two or three employees sitting outside the gate to buy tickets. There is also a piece of white paper with "50 yuan" written on it. Many tourists were also seen holding tickets. But there are also many people who do not have tickets. It is estimated that they belong to the volunteers. Although "vinegar" is an essential condiment for our daily diet, I am afraid few people know how vinegar is produced and how vinegar and vinegar differ. After each process workshop, we know that there is a great deal in the small "vinegar". It is not easy to make vinegar, especially good vinegar. And our vinegar-making workers are really hard. Vinegar is delicious, but vinegar brewing is really a hard job. Vinegar garden can be said to be a popular science garden for us to understand life, which is very suitable for parent-child activities. Of course, vinegar gardens also have promotional links, such as hand-made vinegar, vinegar ice cream. If your purse is bulging, try it.
Donghu Vinegar Garden is a cultural and tourism project created by Shanxi Laochen Vinegar Group Co., Ltd. Visits are free, and tickets are collected at the entrance. Every once in a while, an employee acts as a tour guide to guide tourists, just follow the tour guide. Tourist guides will show tourists the history of Meiheju (the predecessor of the East Lake brand). They are impressed by the fact that many teachers who work in vinegar factories never catch a cold and live to be in their 90s. After visiting the history, we can see all kinds of vinegar products from vinegar factories, as well as large canned vinegar paste, which is said to have been in solid state for decades. Then, the tour guide will take a circle of factories and see the manual vinegar brewing process, which is very fruitful. The glass sunshine room on the second floor is the key link of vinegar brewing. It makes the nose sore and swollen when it goes in, but it is comfortable when it comes out, so it goes back again. Finally, each person received a small cup of vinegar to taste, to promote the end of the East Lake vinegar. Although Donghu Vinegar Garden is built by enterprises, it is indeed one of the few exhibition halls with vinegar culture as the theme, and visitors can observe the whole process of vinegar production process on site, which is also an excellent experience.
Visit the exhibition hall by watching a short film at the vinegar garden, then visit the workshop. Once entering the aging workshop, the pungent sour taste is indescribable. Tears run down and cough is unbearable. I really don't know how the workers in the workshop live every day. It's not easy! You can also taste aged vinegar on the spot. The old vinegar has been acidic for many years. The ears itch until they enter the bone marrow. The garden's self-selected shops are full of vinegar and vinegar derivatives. They tasted chicken with vinegar foam and added vinegar ice cream, which tasted good. Because it is hand-made vinegar, the price is not cheap, 2 liters of a barrel to 150 yuan. Seeing these pictures, the root of the teeth began to sour again, and the sour energy was unforgettable.
East Lake Vinegar Garden is worth visiting. No tickets, entrance and so on. Then there is a documentary about the process of making old vinegar. Then visit the workshop, and then go to the place where old vinegar is sold. 156 yuan 2 liters of plastic bucket, full of 200 yuan, package, Tianmao is sold, the price is the same.
Free explanations, free visits, 600 years of traditional manual brewing, in vinegar Edification under the understanding of vinegar culture, beauty and second floor vinegar sauna that sour, life-long unforgettable ah! Tears run down and I can't help coughing... It is said that steaming once will not catch cold for half a year. Buy some vinegar products, drink vinegar to prolong life...
When we got there, it was almost time to get off work, but the staff showed us documentaries of factory history and showed us warmly one by one according to the production process of vinegar. It was really knowledge-raising. At the same time, we could taste vinegar with different acidity. There were many vinegar products available.
The old factory building of Shanxi Laocheng Vinegar Group is now a museum, displaying the production process of traditional and modern vinegar and the history and culture of vinegar. Free visit, you can also enjoy all kinds of vinegar, staff explain the process of vinegar production, you can also taste 5 and 8 years of vinegar. One of the most distinctive places can be visited in an hour and a half.
Scenic area is relatively small, to the scenic area there are Donghu vinegar garden sister explained, but also visited the production of vinegar workshop. We bought two tickets totaling 8 yuan and sent out two small bottles of vinegar at 7 yuan each. Thank you. However, when boarding the plane, it was not checked and confiscated at Taiyuan Wusu Airport.
The vinegar garden came together, no tickets, there will be a commentator will lead a circle, explain various history, production methods and glory. It tastes so exciting in the factory workshop. It's going to cry. It's not easy for workers to go in for a while, let alone stay there for a long time. The biggest harvest in it is to know that vinegar is acidity value, vinegar in the garden is good, is small, good things are still worth it.
