Shiitake has a meaty texture and a rich, buttery, flavor six times more intense than that of a white button mushroom. Dried, it has fifteen times more flavor building nucleotide's than porcini! This means it adds a great depth of flavor to any recipe, but it is especially well suited for red meats, stir fry, soups, and sauté dishes.
Using Home Grow Mushroom Kits
The very same mushrooms we grow in the chambers of the Field To Fork Facility can be grown in your home. We've done all the hard work for you. Just soak it for a few hours and place in the most humid area of your home for best results (but anywhere can work). Then kick back to watch them grow. Occasional misting is your only chore as you enjoy watching them grow. Once they begin, you will be amazed at how fast they flourish. They’ll be ready to harvest within 1 to 2 weeks. Block or logs produces 1 to 4 pounds, depending on conditions and how many times it is activated to produce a yield (flushed). The hardest part of growing your own mushrooms at home is deciding which favorite recipe or way of cooking them after you pick.
