Why Should I Buy This Product?
Bamboo shoots or bamboo sprouts are the edible shoots (new bamboo culms that come out of the ground) of many bamboo species including Bambusa vulgaris and Phyllostachys edulis. They are used in numerous Asian dishes and broths. They are sold in various processed shapes, and are available in fresh, dried, and canned versions.
- Bamboo shoots are the new growth sprouts of bamboo plants. They are harvested just when the plant breaks through the ground as they become too tough once the stalks begin to grow.
- In Asia and in some areas of the US, fresh bamboo shoots are available, but they otherwise come canned, dried, or vacuum sealed in plastic.
- The shoots must be cooked before eating because of their bitter taste when fresh. The canned and vacuum-sealed varieties are typically precooked.
- In most cultures, simmering fresh bamboo shoots in water or sauce is the best way to release the bitter flavor.
