Maitake mushrooms, also known as hen of the woods, are intensely earthy and savory with a distinctive nutty aroma. This mushroom is one of the most unique and beloved fungi of Japan and is a must-try for the uninitated. Hokto's mushrooms are grown in a soil-free environment and do not need to be washed.
Uses: Sauté on high heat with a generous amount of butter, thyme, and garlic. Try deep-frying maitake with tempura batter for a crispy and delicious snack.
