Organic Maitake Mushroom - 8 ounces
8 ounces organic mushrooms
Maitake—also known as hen of the woods (Grifola frondosa)— means "dancing mushroom" in Japanese, because of the joy of finding this ruffled beauty in the wild. Long considered by traditional Asian medicine to have healing properties, maitake is an adaptogen that helps regulate the body's systems, promoting health, vitality and longevity. These are organically cultivated by Marley's Mushrooms in Dingmans Ferry, PA.
Maitake is wonderful brushed with olive oil and roasted whole until the edges become crispy. It can also be cut into smaller pieces for a fantastic tempura.
