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. It is not uncommon to find the occasional bug on a mushroom, simply wipe it off and know that the mushroom is still perfectly safe and delicious to eat.
