Sarawakian Local Delights : Wood Ears

Image may contain: flower and food

Local wood ears are found all over Sarawak.

They are usually used to flavour vegetable dishes in Iban cuisine, especially in the longhouse.

Very often, the native vegetable sellers already match the vegetables in a platter for their customers. And in fact it is a nice customer service because the customers just need to buy the combined vegetables which are already sliced and cut, take home, wash and then cooked.

Wood ears are normally boiled with pumpkin leaves, sweet young corn.
