Bamboo only has a short growing season (similar to asparagus).
When in season we;
-snap off the shoots under 30cm long.
-slice in half with a sharp knife.
-peel off sheathes.
-simmer gently for 20 minutes to get rid of acidity.
Use in stir-fry or melt butter over and eat.
If shoots taste acidic you have not cooked for long enough. Change water and bring to boil for longer.
