Preserved Bamboo Shoots...why did I buy this?

jenwee Jun 17, 2009 09:34 AM

Pantry cleaning time once again and I have unearthed a jar of preserved bamboo shoots. The ingredients say :bamboo, salt, sugar, chili, soybean oil and lactic acid. They look kind of spicey but im reluctant to open them until I have a use for them.

So........besides staring at it....how can I use it? Help me out here Chowhounds...Thanks! :)

    Try throwing it over a bowl of ramen, over hot white rice, or put it into a stir-fry.
