  1. Hi! This cookbook is called "Gourmet Guide to Chinese Cuisine", right? A book with this recipe, calling for "picnic-style pork roast" and all, was written by my grandmother and her sister in 1965. You can use sugar instead of rock candy- it's what she made (among other things) for the grandkids when we were little. I'm so glad you put some of her recipes online, she doesn't use the internet but will be happy to hear that somebody is enjoying the food. -Maureen
