Why I Love This Recipe

Reprinted from Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms by Paul Stamets

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup dried Shiitake
1/4 cup sake
1/4 cup soy sauce 2 tbsp light brown sugar
2 chopped green onions
a few drops (roasted) sesame oil


Reconstitute 1 cup dried Shiitake by covering with hot water and let stand till caps are completely soft. (Or cover with cold water, microwave on high for 2 minutes and let stand.) Cut off and discard stems. Squeeze excess liquid from caps and slice into 1/4 inch pieces. Place pieces in saucepan with 1/4 cup sake, 1/4 cup soy, and 2 tbsp light brown sugar. Bring to boil and simmer, uncovered, till liquid is almost evaporated, tossing mushrooms occasionally. Remove from heat, cool, and chill. Sprinkle with finely chopped green onions and a few drops of dark (roasted) sesame oil. Serve as appetizer, side dish, or over rice.
