In 1980, Mrs. Deng, who had just retired, opened a dessert shop in front of her house, selling only sesame paste and mung bean soup.
Now, the dessert shop, Yeji Sweet Soup, has been handed over to the third generation of Mrs. Deng's descendants. The current shop owner not only insists on using two stone mills to make sweet paste, but has also created some new types of sweet soup to attract more young people.
