Dried Premium Shiitake Mushrooms
Shiitake Mushrooms (some times called “Chinese Black Mushrooms” or “Forest Mushrooms”) are among the most commonly eaten mushrooms in the world. Native to Asia, they are a versatile and affordable part of many traditional Chinese and Japanese dishes in which they are used in either fresh or dried forms.
Rinse mushrooms under cold running water to remove any possible debris. To rehydrate prior to use, place desired amount in a bowl, and cover with boiling water. Let soak for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse well. Or, rinse well and add directly to recipe that will cook for at least 25 minutes.
This cooked salad highlights the large, meaty caps, intense flavor and beautiful appearance of our Flower Top Shiitake Mushrooms, alongside several other varieties often found in Japanese cuisine. The variety of sizes, shapes and flavors makes for a visually appealing salad, and the bold, bright dressing perfectly contrasts the earthiness of the mushrooms.
