Shiitake Mushrooms

Lentinula edodes

In addition to acting as a general immune system booster, Shiitake can be used as a tonic to promote overall liver and kidney health (Marley, 2009). Shiitake also contains high concentrations of the substance eritadenine, which may be beneficial in reducing blood cholesterol levels (Enman et al., 2007). 

All mushroom availability is seasonal.


Cooking with Shiitake

Shiitake has a meaty texture when cooked and is good for drying and reconstituting in winter soups.
