I don't really know how long to boil it. I asked my mom and she said until you can poke a chopstick through it. Usually my family finishes the whole bamboo in one day so we never actually had leftover bamboo.

I found some videos that might help, though differs from what my mom says. -_-
I'd Rather Be...In Japan:Bamboo. Dig it. Boil It. Cook it with Wild Veggies...

Looks like a loaf of Italian bread with mozzarella cheese down the middle...

LOL I guess it does from that picture. I should have put something else in the picture to show the scale. It is about 4 inches long and about 2 wide.

GB, it might help to think of them as the tough ends of asparagus, more sweetish than bitterish. Boil them however long you want; they will retain their crunch and fiber. I mostly use them in stir-fry, and pickle the remainder.

Don't forget to collect some food stories from your coming vacay!
