FARM #7: Bamboo Harvest in Hakone

in food •  2 years ago


I bet you never saw real bamboo before...

If you hear bamboo you think of these Cans or glasses where the peeled bamboo is pre-cooked and good to eat...
I have to admit that until I had been invited to a Bamboo Harvest by a friend from Japan I had no clue how these bamboo looked...

Here is some Bamboo we did harvest

Between April and May Bamboo in Japan will come out and you need a big Shovel to get them out of the soil. 

I think bamboo is kinda beautiful...

So how to eat these huge babies?

You have to peel them first... and after a while you get the bamboo you actually know from a Can of Bamboo. You than need to cut the Bamboo and cook it for a while. Once they are cooked you need some way to make them tasty so usually in Asia people use fish broth to cook the fresh Bamboo.

I can assure you that the taste of fresh Bamboo is 100% different and so tasty than this Canned or bottled stuff they call Bamboo. If I need a comparision, it is the difference between a Fresh Juice and a Tetra Packed Juice.

Every seen Bamboo in it's raw form before???
