WATER CHESTNUTS

The Water Chestnut, which was formerly exclusive to Chinese cooking, has lately gained popularity as a vegetable in many ethnic recipes.

Water chestnuts are grown in Japan, Taiwan, China, Thailand and Australia.

The Water Chestnut has a relatively bland flavor, yet its firm, crispy texture is perfect as an ingredient in stir-fried vegetables, in salads, and added to rice dishes.

Eaten raw or cooked, the Water Chestnut adds an exotic flavour to food.

They are a good source of Fibre, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

Should you wish to experiment with the taste, pick up a can of Mr. Goudas Water Chestnuts at your local food outlet.

Open the can, rinse and toss into your favourite salad.  

You will be amazed at its crunchy, nut-like flavour.
