Maitake mushrooms are also known as 'Hen of the Woods' or "kumotake" mushrooms. They have a rippling form with no caps, and grow in clumps and clusters at the foot of oak trees. Maitakes are described as being a cluster of dark fronds with a firm and supple texture at its base, becoming slightly brittle and crumbly at the edges. They have a unique shape and a rich flavor.

Dried Organic Maitakes are also available.

Storage: Store fresh mushrooms in your refrigerator wrapped in a paper bag. For long term storage & preservation ideas, read How to Freeze, Can & Dehydrate Fresh Mushrooms.

Shelf Life: Up to ten days fresh. A year or longer dried. Several months frozen.

Maitake mushrooms are quite meaty, with a rich flavor. They hold their shape and crisp texture extremely well in the sauté pan, and are outstanding dipped in tempura batter (tempura batter recipe) and deep fried.

Before cooking, clean them gently with a damp paper towel to remove dirt. Do not soak them.
