Bamboo Shoots

Bamboo shoot are sliced shoots are sourced from the tender base of a bamboo plant and they are native to Asia. In China, they are sold fresh in the market, but the canned variety is easier to find and is for immediate use. Bamboo shoots vary in colour from white to pale yellow and provide a good source of fibre. Their crunchiness and mild taste make them popular in many styles of Asian cuisine, particularly Chinese soups, stir fries. To bring out their natural flavour and crisp texture, drain off the brine and rinse the shoots before use. Unused bamboo shoots can be put in water and stored in the refrigerator for 5-6 days, provided the water is changed daily.
