RECIPE PAGE
To clean Shiitake: Remove any strange particle with a wet cloth or with a light brush. Use a wooden
spoon to lightly tap on the cap if necessary . Aso they can be rinsed in a strainer and then dried with
a paper towel. But don't submerge them for a long time in water.

For storage: Refrigerate immediately in plastic bags or paper towels.  Mushrooms that are packed in
baskets can be maintained for longer duration when the seran wrap that covers them are changed
with a paper towel or paper bag.

To freeze:  Clean well.
Bring a pot of water to boil then add 1 LB of mushrooms, 1/2 tbs of kosher salt and 1/2 tbs of lemon
or lime juice.
Allow it to boil for 8-10 minutes.
Drain hot water and cool the mushrooms using the tap water for 15 seconds.
Allow the mushrooms to air cool 15 minutes before freezing.
