Water chestnuts

Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery

These crunchy morsels are the bulb of an aquatic plant. Peeled, tinned water chestnuts, whole or sliced, are available in most supermarkets as well as in Chinese food stores, and fresh water chestnuts are sometimes to be found in Chinese greengrocers. Use a sharp knife to peel the dark skin from fresh water chestnuts before using them. Store peeled, fresh or tinned water chestnuts, covered with water, in the refrigerator, changing water daily. They will keep for about 1 week.

Water chestnuts are frequently used in Chinese cookery, and their delicate flavour and crisp texture are pleasant in salads and hors d’oeuvre, and with other vegetables.
