Farm grown tender bamboo shoots, brined in a live and active vinegar, fermented in-house from fruit grown on the farm (mango or date palm), aged for 6 months. Our brines are of 2 varities - Kasath (white) and Maneli (pink). Both have similar flavours. Bamboo itself is earthy, carries a subtle flavour with a mild sweetness, close to water chetnuts.
Ancient aboriginies associated select varieties as holy for select families, thus ensuring no single variety was overharvested from the forests. This brine makes a beautiful snack as is, or served along with rice. It can also be used in Asian curries or stir fries.
Tender Bamboo Brine
