DONKO Dried Shiitake



Unit Qty: 70.0 g

Operating out of Takachiho Township in Kyushu, Sugimoto Shoten is a dedicated wholesaler of dried shiitake mushrooms, partnering with about 600 local growers. These shiitakes are cultivated outdoors on sawtooth oak logs free of pesticides, renowned for their sweet sap. Unlike those grown in greenhouses, the open-air environment allows the wind to naturally shape the mushrooms, helping to remove excess moisture. This results in a shiitake mushroom with a robust, umami flavor and a chewy consistency. This time-honored method of outdoor cultivation endows our shiitakes with a texture and taste often likened to "the abalone of the mountains."
