Candied Coconut Ribbons making Class

Mut Tet (Tet candied) is not a food to serve in a meal during Tet holiday, but more like a snack to welcome guests in this special period

 Mut is always kept in beautiful boxes and placed at the table in the living room, and it is the main food for the owners and guests to taste when they’re talking over a cup of tea. This once-in-year mix of snack is very large in variety, with so many tastes: ginger, carrot, coconut, pineapple, pumpkin, lotus seed, star fruit, and sweet potato
