Buy Ready to Cook Bamboo Shoots. There are hundreds of species of bamboo, all of which are potentially edible. Some are much tastier and more productive than others, however. Many species produce scant quantities of small, tough, bitter shoots, which must be cooked for a long time to become even somewhat palatable.
Bamboo shoots have a fairly sweet, earthy taste, but are special because they retain their crunchy characteristics even when cooked. Look for fresh shoots without mushy or black spots that feel fairly heavy for their size. They require quite a bit of processing to make them edible.
