Water Caltrop (Water Chestnut)

I got to have a rare treat at Grandma’s today: Water Caltrop! Tis the season for it in Taiwan! I haven’t had these in ages. I don’t think they sell a lot of it in Taiwan.

Water Caltrop, also known as Water Chestnuts, bat nuts, or devil pods, their peak season in Taiwan is September and October. It doesn’t really taste like much, with its starchy flesh resembling chestnuts, but not as sweet.
