Fresh Hen Of The Woods.
Weekly Harvest available!
Maitake mushrooms, commonly referred to as "hen of the woods," are a highly sought-after mushroom type. They are a preferred option for both professional chefs and household cooks due to their rich, earthy flavor that is both savory and faintly nutty.
The look of Hen of the Woods mushroom is one of their most recognizable characteristics. They differ greatly from other mushroom kinds in their peculiar, fan-like form and enormous clusters of growth. Although they are frequently found in the wild, many parts of the world also cultivate them.
The texture of hen of the woods mushroom is solid yet delicate. They will effectively replace meat in vegetarian and vegan meals thanks to their meat-like texture. They cook nicely while maintaining their texture, which makes them a wonderful complement to soups, stir-fries, and grilled foods.
The health advantages of maitake mushrooms are also widely recognised. They are thought to have anti-inflammatory qualities and are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Additionally, they include beta-glucans, which are substances that have been demonstrated to strengthen the immune system.
They can be kept fresh for up to a week in the refrigerator in a paper bag or covered in a damp towel.
Simply clean the mushrooms with a moist brush or towel and slice them as needed to make maitake mushrooms. For a tasty and nutritious complement to any meal, they can be grilled, sautéed with garlic and herbs, or added to soups and stews.
