A lotus root that will last for ages.

This pre-boiled lotus root, known in Japanese as ‘renkon’, is ready to chop up and add to stir fry or soup dishes without any other preparation necessary. Lotus roots are crunchy root vegetables, iconic for their unique appearance, which features many holes that run through the vegetable. Lotus roots are often used in oden hotpots, fried in tempura, or added to miso soup.

Vegetables packed in vacuum-sealed bags, such as this, are a fairly common sight in Japan and other Asian countries. The main advantage of packaging vegetables this way is that they are preserved without the need for freezing or for using heaps of preservatives, therefore keeping in the nutrients and the flavour.
