Shiitake mushrooms are popular in Japan, where they are grown on logs. These mushrooms from Clearspring are grown in the forest, harvested and sun-dried. The drying process intensifies the flavour and is the norm for shiitake mushrooms.
These mushrooms are high in fibre and low in fat. They expand considerably on soaking and will make a nutritious and flavoursome meal.
Shiitake mushrooms are suitable for use in stir-fries, soups, broths and similar dishes.
Soak the mushrooms for 15 minutes in warm water. Remove the hard woody parts of the stems if there are any, and slice if necessary. Cook as desired.
