    Hen of the Woods (Maitake Mushrooms)


    It’s nearing that time of year again when this delicious, little known mushroom, will be ready to be harvested. One would be surprised at the size and weight that they can reach. My largest find weighed in at a hefty 40lbs. I used some of it fresh and have dried them for future use. Also known as the Miatake they have both culinary and medicinal qualities.

    I’ve been working on a mushroom soup using this along with other fungi and will post it as soon as I create, taste and test.
