He walked out to the courtyard and headed in the direction of his eldest uncle’s house.
As Xue Yan walked, he found that Jiang Yue’s pace had slowed down significantly. He lowered his voice and asked, “Can you say it now?”
Jiang Yue was used to him understanding her immediately, so she was not surprised at all and nodded. As they would occasionally bump into villagers here, she also lowered her voice. “It’s easy to sell Qingshu’s oil for now, but we have to think of a way to make sure that the oil extracted by them can be sold in the future.”
Xue Yan knew that she had a good idea, so he didn’t ask anything more and waited for her to continue.
Jiang Yue continued, “I asked Ling to get me some caramel candy because I wanted to make dragon beard candy with it. After being pulled a few times, the caramel candy will become as thin as a strand of hair. I don’t think there’s any candy like this in town. Have you seen something like this before?”
He had been reborn and seen many things. If he had not heard of it, then there should not be anything like dragon beard candy here.
Xue Yan shook his head, “I don’t think so.”
“That means there’s no one else that’s done it before.” Jiang Yue nodded. Then, she said, “Instead of asking around tomorrow, why don’t we go directly to Shopkeeper Qiao and tell him how to make the dragon beard candy? Although it’s a simple method and someone will figure it out sooner or later, the person who makes it first will always win. It will have a good business in the county and they have a large customer flow. It should be able to make quite a lot of money for us. In that case, Shopkeeper Qiao will be happy to help us solve the vegetable seed oil problem, and we won’t owe them a favor.”
It was equivalent to a deal.
“It’s naturally the best if we can settle the score with them.” Xue Yan said. “Shopkeeper Qiao has some connections in town, and many people in town will give in to him. As long as he’s willing to help us, Qingshu and the others won’t have to worry about not being able to sell their oil, and Xua Yan’s oil mill can continue to operate. But…”
“You can’t use the words like dragon or phoenix randomly.” In other words, it couldn’t be called dragon beard candy.
Jiang Yue also knew that the hierarchy was very strict here. The dragon referred to the Emperor, and the phoenix referred to the Empress.”
“We can name it something like a silver thread candy.”
“Then let’s tell Shopkeeper Qiao that it’s called the silver thread candy,” Xue Yan said.
“Okay.” Jiang Yue thought about how he had drawn the layout of the workshop so clearly, and the lines were flawless as if he had done it in one go. His drawing skills were extraordinary, so if she asked him to draw something else, he would definitely be able to do it. “Later, when I ask them to make the candy, you can also watch from the side. When the time comes, help me draw a picture of how to make it and add some words as instructions. This way, when Shopkeeper Qiao sees it, even if we don’t teach him directly, the people in his restaurant can replicate it according to the drawing and the instructions.
Xua Yan’s house was right in front of her, but before Jiang Yue could get close, she saw a woman with a big face standing at the entrance of Xua Yan’s courtyard. This woman looked somewhat similar to Zhang Meili.
The woman stood at the entrance of the courtyard and shouted, “DaguiI! It was very expensive! Are you inside? If you are, come out for a moment!”
Xue Yan also saw it and whispered to her, “That’s Xue Zhuzi’s aunt.”
Only then did Jiang Yue realize that the woman was Zhang Meili’s elder sister.
When Jiang Yue and Xue Yan walked to the door of the house, their Dagui, Xue Dagui, ran out of his house and smiled at the woman. “Hehe, what are you doing here?”
