Shiitake Mushroom

The Shiitake mushroom, great cooked most ways, really hard to go wrong. Forest Fungi grow Shiitakes in bags and on logs.

DESCRIPTION: This is another easy mushroom to grow-on hardwood logs, supplemented sawdust, and even straw. Delicious fresh with an amazing solid whilst silky texture. Shiitake really is one of our favourite mushrooms.

Favourite recipe: Don’t have one. Anything you do with a Shiitake is bound to please. Once we made a Shiitake, goat’s cheese and garden greens quiche which was great.
