    Buy Dried Shiitake Mushrooms , Dating back thousands of years the dried shiitake has been used in medicine and cooking throughout Eastern Asia.

    The mushroom was often ground up or used in teas and prescribed for respiratory infections, to improve blood circulation, and to prevent aging.

    The fact that it tasted so otherworldly that it was thought to be a gift from the gods made it a medicine that many were happy to take.

    The shiitake is a mushroom that is always preferred dried over fresh.

    Dried and reconstituted, the mushroom has a far more intense flavor and the broth can be used for deglazing pans and adding to soup stocks.

    The woody stems are often discarded before drying as they’re usually inedible. The flavor is incredibly savory and umami-centric with hints of beef.
