Organic Dried Shiitake Mushrooms

$15

Shiitake is the oldest known cultivated mushroom in the world, and has been used as both food and medicine for thousands of years. It’s well-loved for its savory umami flavor and versatility in cooking. Use these dried Shiitake mushrooms in almost any meal you would use fresh mushrooms.

Features:

  • Savory umami flavor and meaty texture
  • Extremely versatile in cooking
  • Choose from 1 oz or 4 oz
  • Organically grown on our farm in Bellingham, Washington

 

To use:

Soak whole mushrooms in hot water or broth for 15-30 minutes, then remove from liquid and use as you would fresh mushrooms. The leftover soaking liquid can be used as a flavorful addition to soups & sauces. Dried mushrooms can also be crushed up by hand or chopped and added to a simmering liquid or soup 15 minutes before serving. Organically grown on our farm in the Pacific Northwest, the distinctive woodsy flavor and meaty texture is a delicious addition to many meals.
