Qin Jin Guo

          I am from China. I have been here over 10 years. Every time I eat Qin Jin Guo, I always remember my childhood and my parents. Qin Jin Guo is a dry olive that is marinated in Chinese Spices and salt for few hours and dried outside for a few days. It isn’t just food. It is also a kind of medicine. When I was child, I had a digestive problem. My parents always gave me Qin Jin Guo to eat. It made my stomach better. When I left home to head for the U.S., my parents packed Qin Jin Guo with me. After I left my hometown. Whenever I got homesick or stomachache, I always ate it. It helps my health and encourages me to struggle in this new world.
