Because our local mushroom farmers decided to buy the Chinese Shiitake logs, we had to look for a source for American grown Shiitakes. We found a source for fresh and for dried. We must insist on American products. It is important for you, the consumer, to know where our food is coming from.
Dried mushrooms should be soaked for 30 minutes in water, saving the liquid for present or future recipes.
