Hey Stil--reply #2, second photo--what is that?  Some kind of fruit or melon hung out to dry?  I've seen it around here the last few weeks too.

It's a kind of white carrot that they dry and pickle in a spicy brine out here. It's called 胡萝卜 húluóbo.

Ah, that stuff!  Perhaps I know it as luobo gan then.  Often to be consumed with la rou, the Chinese bacon that isn't bacon and only good if not too salty though it frequently is.

I am, sadly, reminded of the best la rou I ever had, made by a Jiangxi couple who had a literally tiny restaurant in a hole in the wall in Wenzhou.  They cured their own meat and instead of being out and out saltlick like most la rou seems to be, this one had a sweetness as well.  Very tasty.  I never met the like again.

 胡萝卜 It's like a very large radish more than a carrot, IMHO.

Yeah, I agree old34 but they call it a carrot. 红萝卜 hóngluóbó seems to mean carrot or radish around here too.

My husband calls the white ones 白萝卜, which I guess means radish or turnip. He's pickling some now and they smell awful when they're pickling!
