Has anybody of you cooked fresh bamboo yet?
Ours is shooting away now and since we had some terrible taste experiences last year I thought I better ask some experts:
[b]How long and how often (with water changes) do you have to boil fresh bamboo shoots (after peeling) before they are safe to eat AND good tasting?[/b]
Last year I did 3 water changes,
I boiled them 3 times for about 10 minutes each time, starting with cold water each time.
They were still not very edible.
The variety is Phyllostachis edulis - supposedly one of the best eating bamboos around.
The shoots are about 5 to 15cm in length.
