Shiitake Mushrooms – A Missed Opportunity


Overripe Shiitake Mushrooms

I missed one of the largest flushes of mushrooms I’ve ever had by three or four days.  I didn’t  even think to be checking for them in our summer heat and it was just chance that I looked  over in the woods, today, to find these.  They are on three year old logs, which is all the more surprising.

We’ll see if we can dry a lot of them.  I think we can, but many are spent and black.  Too bad, the fresh shiitake are one our favorite crops.
