Cooking Methods: Sauté, Pan-Roast, Roast, Stew, Braise, cook en Papiotte
Cooking Tips: After opening, store any unused mushrooms in the box they came in or in a brown paper bag. Keeping the mushrooms in clusters will keep them fresher longer. Washing our cultivated mushrooms is not necessary and will change the texture. Simply trim the bottoms and they are ready for use in your favorite recipes. Maitake mushrooms have rich umami flavor that complements roasted meats and poultry, Asian dishes, dark leafy greens, and grains. We like to roast them with avocado oil and flake salt, or sauté them in miso-butter.
