Bamboo Shoots

Foods / Bamboo Shoots

About This Food

Description

Bamboo shoots are the young, sprouting stems of a bamboo plant. In most groceries, you can find canned bamboo shoots, which have been peeled and cut into strips.

If you want fresh bamboo shoots, look at a Chinese grocery store or gourmet market. They often carry fresh, whole bamboo shoots, which are cone-shaped, and about 4-5 inches long.

Fresh shoots are a good source of thiamin, vitamin B6, and potassium. However, canned shoots have been stripped of most of their vitamins and minerals.

Selecting & Storing

Rinse canned bamboo shoots well and add to your recipe. Becasue they are pre-cooked, they only need to be heated though. Boil fresh bamboo shoots until tender, then husk and cut up.
