Steamed Mochi Stuffed Dates | 心太软

This is a traditional Shanghainese dessert that I grew up eating. It has a beautiful name in Chinese: 心太软 (a heart too soft) due to the soft mochi center and natural sweet flavor from the jujube date. If you don't have jujube dates, you can substitute with medjool dates. I hope you enjoy this blood-nourishing, naturally sweet dessert!
