1 lb. of shiitake mushrooms from our friends Will, Rowan, and the crew at Sno-Valley Mushrooms (Duvall, WA).
Shiitakes are earthy, rich, and savory in flavor. The stem is edible: leave it on the babies, chop it into rounds for the jumbos. Cultivated on red alder and cottonwood substrate from sawmills in Western Washington, supplemented with organic grains and hydrated with water from the creek adjacent to the farm. No manure, pesticides, fertilizers, or synthetic chemicals used.
