Sour Bamboo Shoots - The Soul Spices of Dai-styled Yunnan Cuisine

Besides various fungus and mushrooms, the mountains are abundant in all kinds of bamboo shoots, sweet bamboo shoots, bitter bamboo shoot, mountain bamboo shoots...Every time when I think of bamboo shoots, it always makes me drool. Today, I want to introduce the bitter bamboo shoots. It is also called the giant bamboo shoots. It can be sliced and boiled to make "yellow bamboo shoots", or it can be shredded to soak in water and ferment for days to make "sour bamboo shoots". Though it is sour and smelly, the sour bamboo shoots have a unique taste that is truly irreplaceable.
Different bamboo shoots will give you a different taste when cooked in different ways. But one thing that remains the same is its freshness. Do enjoy the bamboo shoots during the wet season.
