Bamboo shoots, also known as bamboo sprouts, are the edible shoots of many species of bamboo plants. Bamboo shoots are not edible raw: they must undergo an intensive cleaning and cooking process to be made safe for consumption. These bamboo shoots are fully cleaned, cooked, seasoned, and ready-to-eat. Chili bamboo is fragrant and fruity with the flavor of fresh chili oil and bursting with savoriness. Eat it as a side dish, use it as a condiment, or add it as an ingredient to your other dishes.
