UPDATE: Sorry for the delay! I promise it won't happen again....but it's nice to see that you guys get excited to find out what our mystery food is
For those of you who answered BAMBOO SHOOTS.....you are correct!!!! A far cry from the somewhat stringy, water-logged, canned version, these guys are crunchy and have a texture somewhat similar to hearts of palm. They are delicious sliced and tossed with vinegar, scallion, sesame oil and hot red chilies.
I bet you have had these before, but who knew that this is what they look like? What are they?
