In the beautiful Oita Forest on Kyushu Island in Japan, shiitake growers have been cultivating organic shiitake the traditional way for over 100 years. Unlike most shiitake that's industrially grown on sawdust, Ohsawa Organic Donko Shiitake is grown slowly on old "Kunugi" oak logs in a protected forest that is recognized by the United Nations for its regenerative permaculture. The thick, closed cap shiitake are carefully handpicked and dried to retain precious, beneficial spores.
Rehydrate for 30 minutes. Save the soak water and use in this or another dish. Trim stems and slice caps.
