Yurine is the edible bulb of the Lily plant. Yurine bulbs can be consumed either raw or cooked. Small in size, about 4.5 centimeters in diameter, these bulbs consist of tightly layered flat scales, connected at the stem base, similar to garlic. Off-white in color, the fresh petals are crisp and remove easily from the connective base. Yurine has a mild, watery flavor, similar to water chestnuts, and a crisp and crunchy texture.
