Garlic and ginger infuse thinly sliced fresh bamboo shoots with plenty of flavor, while red bell pepper adds color and sweetness.Jenny Huang

To remove the skin when preparing fresh bamboo, make a shallow cut lengthwise down the skin, then peel away and discard it. Cut off the in­edible thicker end of the shoot. Never wash fresh bamboo with water, which can give it an unpleasant flavor. Instead, use a dry towel to brush away any dust or dirt.
