Preserved Turnip ( Hua-chi Po Wan )


You can see a typical brand of preserve turnip at the bottom right of the photograph (not full size!), it is sold in clear packets and is widely available in Asian supermarkets, so it's easy to spot. The taste is slightly sweet, slightly tangy.

It's used in stir fries and omelettes and also as a flavouring in plain rice soups to add a tang. Not really a pickle sourness, more a candy tang.
