Tianjin preserved vegetable are made from cabbage pickled with salt from Tianjin in Hebei, China. Fancy ones come in lovely ceramic jars, but the one I bought is sold in red plastic jar. Many Chinese dishes are flavored with this preserved cabbage, from soup, stir fried, stew, to steamed dishes. Since I just bought a jar full of the stuff, you will be seeing future dishes with this stuff in the recipes :D
