Dried Lobster Mushrooms
Lobster mushrooms are a unique hybrid between a parasitic fungus and its host mushroom, which is hijacked for its nutrients and transformed into a vivid red-orange variety. Lobster mushrooms have thick, meaty flesh and a deep, earthy flavor.
Rinse mushrooms under cold running water to remove any possible debris. To rehydrate prior to use, place desired amount into a bowl, cover with boiling water and let soak for 15 to 20 minutes, agitating occasionally to shake loose any clinging debris. Drain and rinse, or rinse and add directly to any recipe that will cook for at least 25 minutes.
