Lotus #6

Cross section of the stems. We can drink water or other beverage through the lotus stem straw. Of course, SAKE is the best beverage !

Such an interesting idea. Sure enough, they look like straws and certainly work. Thanks for sharing.

Original picture.
Sake drinking with straw must be dangerous (this enhances the Alcohol, right?)

@Graciel·la (Vic. Catalonia): Unfortunately, I drunk only water. Thanks ;)

Lovely !!
We chop these into slices and cook them in salted water and dry them in the sun. Then we deep fry them in oil. They taste great! We also cook them into dishes !!

@Devi: Wow, great food culture !!

So much information to learn about the lotus!! There's a real push to eliminate plastic straws now. Great detail captured in this cross section!

I like your suggestion. The next drink I order, I will ask for a lotus stem with it.
