Description

The shiitake is a staple in traditional Asian cuisine and has become a more acknowledged mushroom in North America over the last decade. These are known for their earthy and umami flavors as well as dense texture.  They go very well in a number of applications including sautéing, frying, boiling, steaming, and grilling. In larger shiitake the stem can become woody and is usually discarded. However with the baby shiitake since it is so tender, it is very convenient for preparation and cooking as it can be used whole without removing the stem.

How to Store and Handle Mushrooms

  • Mushrooms should be kept in the refrigerator in a paper bag.
  • As a rule, clean the mushrooms as you need them, ideally without water. Paring knives, mushroom brushes, and tea towels can all be used to remove debris.
  • Mushrooms will usually last about a week in the refrigerator, but are best consumed within the first three days.
  • If the mushrooms you receive are a little damp, allow them to air dry in the refrigerator.
