CCOF Organic Shiitake Powder
Top quality Shiitakes have been the focus of our farm for many years. We pride ourselves on producing some of the best organic mushrooms on the West Coast. A small portion of our fresh harvest goes to producing this high quality powder, which is bold with a light garlic flavor. Shiitake is one of the most potent natural sources of umami flavor, and it has been used for millennia to add depth of flavor in Chinese and Japanese cuisine. It is a staple component in dashi, and ramen just isn’t the same without it.
Far West Fungi creates this line of mushroom powders by air-drying fresh mushrooms in our own commercial kitchen, and then grinding them into a fine powder. The result is a powerful mushroom seasoning, free from sodium, preservatives, or any other additive. It’s simple and pure: mushroom essence and nothing else.
Use mushroom powder as a base for soups and sauces, whisk with eggs in a scramble or omelette, use as a seasoning rub for meat, fish, and poultry. Mushroom powder can be mixed with flour when baking, or dusted over roasted vegetables. It is a healthy way to add umami and depth of flavor to any dish.
