Maitake mushrooms are commonly referred to as "Hen of the Woods" because the petals resemble plumage.
Maitake mushrooms impart a unique nutty flavor when sauteed and are delicious when paired with chicken, rice, and pasta.
This dried mushroom is also great for adding to hot pot, a variety of East Asian stews since the texture holds well in simmering stock. This gourmet bulk package allows for easy use all year long.
If you want a mushroom that you can taste the Maitake is the one. for you. It is not mushy like so many other mushrooms..
These are the tastiest dried maitake mushrooms and a bonus that they are organic as they are not easy to find. I use them in miso soups, creamy mushroom soups, risottos and stir fry's for their delicious umami taste. The richness of the mushrooms are simply the best I have cooked with.
Another fantastic purchase! I'm truly running out of positive words to describe these mushrooms. Packaging and quality of product are the same every order. Fantastic!!
