Product Description

Searching for a cai po with a flavor beyond just saltiness? Try our aged version with a natural umami taste, perfect for adding depth to soups.  

Budai in Chiayi is one of the primary radish production areas in Taiwan, responsible for producing over 90% of Taiwan's Cai Po ( dried radish).

This particular Cai Po comes from the Donggang community in Budai, Chiayi. It represents a collaboration among the local older, middle-aged, and younger generations, aiming to use this familiar flavour to encourage the younger generation to return to their hometowns. Made from plump 'White Lady' radishes, these radishes are hand-shredded and salted, then pressed under heavy stones to remove excess moisture. They are marinated and aged for over six years before being opened and packaged for retail.

The only ingredients are radish and salt, and over time, this combination slowly develops a rich, deep, and fragrant flavour, earning it the status of a rare 'black gold' ingredient. Its most classic application is in simmered chicken or pork rib soups, where just a small amount of aged Cai Po can significantly enhance the rich and savoury flavor.

Recommended storage : Refrigerate after purchase.

Soulful Chicken Soup with Aged Radish

嘉義布袋,是台灣最主要的蘿蔔產地之一,擁有最密集的菜脯(蘿蔔乾)工廠,
全台超過9成的菜脯皆是由布袋生產供應。

這款菜脯乾來自嘉義布袋當地的東港社區,結合在地的老中青世代,希望透過大家熟悉的味道,鼓勵年輕一輩願意返鄉。選用外型肥滿的「白娘」蘿蔔,經過手工刨絲、抹鹽的程序,以重石壓除多餘水分,並醃漬陳年長達六年以上才開封。

原料只有蘿蔔和鹽,在時間的催化下慢慢浸潤出濃醇厚實的傳家芬芳,被視為珍稀的「黑金」食材。最經典用法是燉煮雞湯、排骨湯,只需少量老菜脯便可提吊出濃鮮滋味;用於煎蛋也別有風味。
