Dried CCOF Organic Maitake
Product of California
Also known as Hen of the Woods, Maitake mushrooms are popular for both their culinary and medicinal uses. A natural adaptogen, maitake is a powerful immune booster, and helps to regulate any of the body's systems that may have become unbalanced. It is beloved for its smoky, meat-like flavor. Our organic dried maitake mushroom works well for medicinal or culinary uses. Maitake smells great and tastes even better. It can be used as an herbal supplement, made into tea, or cooked into any dish where fresh mushrooms are called for. Its culinary uses are endless, but our favorite is ramen!
Far West Fungi creates this line of dried mushroom by air-drying a select portion of its fresh organic and wild foraged mushrooms. All drying is done in-house at our own commercial kitchen, where great care is taken to preserve the natural essence of the mushroom. The result is a powerful, concentrated mushroom product, free from sodium, preservatives, or any other additive. It’s simple and pure: mushroom essence and nothing else.
Dried mushrooms can be reconstituted in any kind of warm liquid (wine, broth, cream, ect.) for 15 - 20 minutes, and then used in any application in which fresh mushrooms are called for. Try them as a base for soups and sauces, combine with eggs in a scramble or omelette, cook into a risotto, or toss with pasta.
