Also known as Black Forest Mushroom, Sawtooth Oak Mushroom, Cendawan Shiitake.

Shiitake mushrooms have wide umbrella-shaped caps in light to dark brown colour attached to thin stems. The flesh with cream-coloured is firm and chewy. They have a strong, smoky, earthy flavour and taste rich, buttery when cooked.

Storage Method:

Mushrooms have a very high water content, so they need air to stay firm and fresh. Place them in a small bowl or container and cover with plastic wrap. Don’t use sealable containers because you want to give your mushrooms some air. To that end, poke a few holes in the plastic, then store in the fridge and use within one week.

Bearing in mind that they are already so high in water content, you do not want to contribute more moisture. Don’t wash them before storing.

Cooking:

Can be grilled, sauteed, braised, fried, boiled
