Preparation:

  • To prepare fresh lily bulb, peel and wash the layers thoroughly in cold water before cooking. Since the bulb grows in mud, sand and muddy debris can be trapped in between the layers.
  • Dried lily bulb do not need much preparation. They are simply rinsed and used in cooking.
  • If making soups with dried lily bulb, note that over cooking will cause the dried petals to disintegrate, causing your soup a little cloudy or chalky. Follow your recipe for appropriate cook time.
