Joys from the Market:TAKENOKO

by KK

Hi this is KK, Sushi Artist / Healthy Muffin Maker / Mum 🙂

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I went to the Market last Friday for the first time! I love going to markets and watch what is grown at the local farms. It is so exciting to see different varieties of fruit and veggies sold in various places.

The fruit and vegetable market in Sydney was similar to market in Japan, and there were so many people shopping in boxes!! I was very tempted to do that, but stayed calm and had a simple browse.

I wasn’t planning to buy too much, but when I found this, I did a little dance (well, not in public but in my heart 🙂 ) and bought it!!

Can you tell what this is?

It’s a bamboo shoot!

We eat this in Japan during spring. Funny to find it in this season, isn’t it summer now? Oh, I forgot to ask if it was grown local. Oooops, maybe it was imported.

Oh well!

On the day I bought it, I had done the preparation. I am going to make Bamboo Shoot Rice out of this 🙂 Planning to cook it for family dinner on Sunday. Can’t wait to share the recipe with everyone!!
