Bamboo is considered an invasive species in America that displaces native plants here - mainly because it thrives in hot climates, like that normally found in the southern states, and years with heat waves like this one all over. Most in America view bamboo as a nuisance, but I love to eat bamboo shoots. I saw the bamboo growing in my freinds' backyard as a culinary opportunity instead of a problem.What are some of the fastest growing vegetables?
Guess I'll include one as well:I have heard of sauteing radishes and more recently, I saved a recipe for creamed radishes.This recipe calls for heavy cream, and I am sure it tastes better with cream, but I would be inclined to use milk.
1 pound radishes
2 TBL butter
2 TBL flour
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup heavy cream
Cut radishes in half lengthwise. Place into a pot with 1 cup of boiling water. Simmer until radishes are pierceable and still a little firm. Drain.
Add butter to pot and melt. Add flour and whisk til smooth. Stir in salt & pepper. Whisk in cream and continue cooking until thickened.
Stir in radishes. Serve warm.
