Dried Matsutake Mushrooms
from Oregon Mushrooms
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
For a unique taste sensation, try the matsutake mushroom, which has a spicy flavor with pine and cinnamon fragrance. Matsutake means "pine mushroom." It grows most abundantly along the coast of Washington state and has also been found in Canada, Oregon, Idaho and Northern California. This meaty delight is either white or brown with a thick cotton-like partial veil. Its surface is smooth and dry, and its stem is short and broad. When in doubt, its odor is what identifies this mushroom–very spicy and clean.
Excellent quality dried matsutakes, these are picked and dried the same day. Matsutakes are a choice edible and are a very popular Asian food ingredient. All of our dried mushrooms reconstitute well and are ready to be added to stews, soups and sauces. Especially good in rice dishes, with fish or chicken.
