Bamboo Shoot Spears (2005-06-14)
I cooked them the way just as she told me to: grilled with a bit of
oil and salt and pepper. They turned out to be so tough that we
had a hard time chewing them, and they also tasted weird. Then I
peeled back the layers heavily with the remaining lot and cooked them
for a very long time in a stew. This time they softened somewhat
but still tasted weird.
If you ever plan on giving food as gifts, make sure it is not too exotic and unusual, otherwise your good intention and effort will just be wasted.
