This Maitake is cultivated on the East Coast of Canada. The farmer harvests and ships directly to us in the same day. There are about 2-4 clusters, or heads, in one pound! The Maitake mushroom with it's distinct citrus edge, is regarded as possessing a long mid palate citronella finish. When cooked, Maitake mushrooms are succulent, semi-firm, and chewy with a woodsy, earthy, and spicy flavour. This mushroom is meaty and has a soft floral nose. It is also widely regarded as having medicinal benefits. The surface of the tiny pores under the caps is whitish. The spores are also white. Storage Tips: Mushrooms should be kept in the refrigerator in a paper bag. Mushrooms will usually last about a week in the refrigerator, but are best consumed within the first three days. If the mushrooms you receive are a little damp, allow them to air dry in the refrigerator. Mushrooms should be fully cooked prior to eating. As a rule, clean the mushrooms as you need them, ideally without water. Paring knives, mushroom brushes, and tea towels can all be used to remove debris.
