Gobo

burdock root

Gobo is a long, slender root with a brown, fuzzy exterior. Although used medicinally in China, it is used in Japanese cooking.

When cooking with gobo, it is best to scrape, not peel off, the outside skin of the root. Gobo should be soaked in cold water with a few drop of vinegar to remove some of its bitterness.
