One Response to “Edible Bamboo Shoots”

    My notes from the videos of a Permaculture Design Course given by Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton in Melbourne, 2005, available at tagari.com:

    All bamboos can be eaten. Some are high in prussic acid. These you have to wash out or ferment. Fermenting improves the quality a lot. Put them in earthenware filled with water and grasses to ferment. It’s done in Thailand, Vietnam, etc. In Thailand they put them in 5 gallon tins, seal the bamboo in there in water, and they
    stay fine. Open the tin, take some out, cut it up and eat it or cook it. It can be 2 or 3 years old!
